Social Policy is a vital field that examines public policies addressing societal issues and aims to improve human welfare. It delves into the design, implementation, and impact of policies on areas like health, education, housing, and social security. Students explore how policies are formulated, the role of governments and NGOs, and the effectiveness of different welfare systems. The curriculum integrates aspects of sociology, economics, and political science, equipping students with the skills to analyze and influence policy-making processes. Graduates often pursue careers in government, policy analysis, community development, or advocacy, where they can make significant contributions to shaping and improving social welfare systems and outcomes.
