Over the academic year, you will study six modules: Managers and Organisations; Contemporary Social Policy; Law and the Workplace; Globalisation and Social Change; Explaining Crime; Managing Equality; and Promoting Diversity in the Public Services. For the double-weighted Final Research Project module, you will benefit from individual supervision for this element of your course. The project encourages you to investigate your individual areas of interest.
