Overview

Taught by researchers with international reputations in their respective fields, this course explores social problems and welfare issues with social theories and research methods.

Social policy deals with interventions, or the ways in which people deliberately try to bring about social change. These interventions often try to solve wicked problems - so called because they have complex interdependencies and are resistant to resolution. Trying to solve one problem can often give rise to others. Examples are areas such as climate change, inequalities, pandemic planning, social justice and welfare.

Social policies do not always succeed: they can be a tool for the promotion of social justice but equally, they may exacerbate social problems and sometimes even cause them meaning that questions about how we judge those policies are ultimately matters for political and moral debate. Social policy is thus a fascinating and dynamic area of interdisciplinary study which draws on the insights of a range of social and political sciences.... [-]

Criminology is concerned not just with crime, how it is defined, experienced and explained, but also with the different ways in which individuals and societies respond to it. It is an interdisciplinary area of study that draws on insights from sociology, social policy, law and the social sciences more generally.

Criminologists adopt different theoretical perspectives and use a range of research methods to increase our understanding of crime and criminal justice. They are interested in offenders (and how they are defined), in the victims of crime, in the social contexts in which crime and victimisation take place, and in ways of controlling crime - whether that is through changing social policies to do with housing, education and welfare or through the work of specialist institutions like the police, probation and prison services....
