International Social Policy Masters (MA)


Course Description

The MA International Social Policy is designed to equip students with the knowledge and research skills that they will need to thrive in the globalised, interdependent societies of the twenty-first century. The questions it addresses include:

• How are welfare states adapting to new economic and political realities?
• What are the implications of climate change and global warming for the future of social policy?
• What lessons about social reform can differing nations learn from one another?
• How should we explain differences in the financing and organisation of diverse welfare systems?
• To what extent can cross-national forms of provision and citizenship rights be devised?
• Is globalisation undermining the ability of national governments to determine welfare policies?
• What influence is exerted by organisations such as the World Bank, the IMF, the UN, the International Labour Organisation and the World Trade Organisation?
• What influence does the European Union have on national policy-making?
• What are the existing trends in, and future prospects for, levels of global poverty?
• To what extent are Non-Governmental Organisations influencing policy-making?

Our aim is to not simply to inform students about recent debates and literatures but to assist their ability to investigate these topics and develop their own independent research interests. We hope and expect that many students will later pursue research careers (including PhDs) and/or work in the field of policy-making.

The core modules are: Welfare Policy (10 credits), Research Methods & Research Management (20 credits), Climate Change & Social Policy (10 credits), Fundamentals of International Social Policy (20 credits), Globalisation, Europeanisation and Public Policy (20 credits), Dissertation (60 credits).

In addition there are a range of elective modules to choose from, including: Human Rights and Modern Slavery (10 & 20 credits), Migration, Multiculturalism and Mobilisation (10 & 20 credits), Civil Society: the Role of NGOs (10 & 20 credits), Leadership, Strategy & Performance in the Public Sector (10 & 20 credits).
