We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The Department of Social, Therapeutic and Community Studies has a national and international reputation for excellence in teaching and learning, community engagement and applied research.
A key aspect of our activity is the delivery of high-quality programmes at pre, qualifying and post-qualifying levels in a number of important professional areas. These areas include social work, counselling, art psychotherapy, dance movement psychotherapy, community arts, community development and community and youth work. As a result our graduates are well-placed in terms of employability and their skills fit well with the expectations of organisations linked to social, community and health care in London as well as further afield.
We are proud of our longstanding commitment to addressing issues of social injustice in our teaching and the range of opportunities we offer for work-based learning across London and the South East.
The activities of the Department are underpinned by a vibrant, research culture which uses a range of methodologies to critically analyse policy and practice in our professional disciplines. We believe that, in choosing to study with us, you will greatly benefit from the wealth of experience of our staff and their commitment to ensuring that you will leave us as a reflective, research minded professional.
