This programme, which offers both an academic award and a professional qualification in Social Work, prepares you for careers in a broad range of social work agencies and settings.
The teaching emphasis is on issues relevant to social work practice in contemporary Britain, and explores the ways in which sociology, law, social policy and psychology inform and enhance professional social work.
The Department works in partnership with local stakeholders, including the main statutory and voluntary social work agencies in the North-West, and offers 170 days of placement practice learning.
