About Social Policy at University of Lincoln

This degree aims to explore how social problems arise, how governments react and the impact this has on society. Students can learn the skills necessary to analyse critically the efficacy and fairness of policies and explore public and media responses.

Social Policy draws on a range of social science disciplines, including sociology, politics, philosophy, economics, geography and law. Students can use these approaches to examine welfare, poverty, social exclusion and inequality, tackling difficult and often controversial topics, including current issues in the news.

Teaching is informed by the research expertise of academic staff from the School of Social & Political Sciences, who contribute regularly to national policy debates.
