Course Summary

Course Summary

Our research consistently delivers improved outcomes for the delivery of social for adolescent self-harm, suicide prevention and child abuse. Active social work and social policy research strands range from international human rights to the practical – such as applying practice-near research to social work, and using new media to help people with learning disabilities. We also use geo-information and numerical simulations to develop crime, health and social policies.

Our Sociology strand includes active research on anthropology, political economy, social psychology and psychoanalysis, international development, politics, refugee, urban and gender studies. Internationally, the School has partnerships with the University of New Mexico and the American University of Cairo; as well as exchange programmes with several European colleges.
