School of Social Science and Public Policy

The School of Social Science and Public Policy (SSPP) draws upon a long and distinguished heritage. We have carried out research and teaching in a wide range of social science, social and public policy, and professional practice fields since the mid-20th century, including pioneer taught programmes and internationally leading research in Criminology, Education, Sociology, Social Work and Gerontology. Our research and teaching focuses on the many dimensions of social policy and practice, and socio-cultural change, that social science helps to illuminate rigorously and critically. We are respected internationally for our world leading research and the quality of our education, which is both theoretically innovative and relevant to application in the real world.
