About MSci Social Policy with Innovation

The innovators of the 21st century will bring together arts, science, engineering, humanities and enterprise to deliver innovative products, services and ways of living. They will be team players with skills and qualities that enable them to work across specialisms and cultures.

This course combines in-depth subject specialism in social policy with interdisciplinary breadth, creative teamwork and entrepreneurial skills. Alongside your social policy studies, you will apply your subject knowledge by translating ideas into plans for digital and creative enterprises, both social and commercial.

Social policy is a multidisciplinary subject that provides an exciting opportunity to critically analyse contemporary social issues related to human wellbeing, inequality and disadvantage, and crime. The course is taught by experts in their field and takes an international and comparative perspective in many units, ensuring social policy is considered within a global context.

You will come together with students from other innovation disciplines, such as computer science and geography, to learn and apply design and systems thinking to digital and creative ideas. You will work in transdisciplinary teams to put these ideas into practice, ultimately creating new ventures together.

Please note, the admissions statement for this course will be available online in summer 2019.
