Subject

Applied social science

This programme - developed by community leaders, for community leaders - is designed to give people working at grass roots level the tools they need to make change happen. You’ll develop skills in leadership, project development and management, and find out how to fund and effectively manage action groups, so your community can take control of its own regeneration. The idea is that everything you learn; you pass on to your peer groups through mentoring - a cascade effect that sustainably improves the community for everyone. You’ll graduate fully prepared to lead your community - and it’s the perfect stepping stone to a further Honours degree.

The programme is designed to enable students to become effective community leaders within various professional workplace situations. It follows a three stage learning process: theoretical perspectives, application of theory in practice, and reflection on application. The programme will engage the student in learning core skills in leadership and management, whilst also allowing them to explore concepts relating to community within a broader social and cultural context. You will also be eligible for awards from the ILM as part of your programme.

You will have opportunities to engage with communities on an international level through our strong links in Russia, Pakistan, Oman, and the USA. We organise a number of international visits per year.

This section covers a range of subjects that are often very different, so if you have a particular course in mind, the data here might not fully reflect the possible outcomes from your particular choice. Graduates from these subjects tend to do similar sorts of things to graduates from other social studies courses, so welfare and community roles are common, as are education, whilst graduates also often go into management, marketing and HR jobs and jobs in the police, and employment rates are good in general — but talk to course tutors and attend open days and try to get stats for the course you’re interested in.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
