A Master of Science or MSc is a postgraduate degree typically in the fields of sciences and social sciences. MSc may be course-based, research-based, or a mixture of the two.
Social policy examines how governmental structures meet human needs. Such necessities include health, education, and safety. These programs may prepare students to pursue careers that seek to improve lives around the world.
Europe is, by convention, one of the world's seven continents. Comprising the western most point of Eurasia, Europe is usually divided from Asia by the watershed divides of the Ural and Caucasus Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian and Black Seas, and the waterways connecting the Black and Aegean Seas.

Why this course?
This course offers you the opportunity to develop and extend your knowledge and understanding of key social policy issues together with advanced training in research methods.
It aims to improve your knowledge and understanding of the factors which shape social needs and the ways in which different societies have responded to these. This will enhance your research skills and enable you to undertake an independent research project on a topic of your choice.
It's suitable for:
students who have studied social policy at the undergraduate level and who now wish to build on the foundations they have already laid before entering employment or embarking on further study
graduates of other disciplines who wish to improve their knowledge and understanding of social and welfare issues whilst also enhancing their research skills
individuals already in employment who wish to update their existing knowledge and skills before moving onto the next stage of their careers
What you'll study

Social Problems and Social Policy offers students an insight into the ways in which social problems are defined and tackled within contemporary welfare states, analysing the roles ascribed to citizens, professionals and other stakeholders within these processes. It considers the recent histories of various policy approaches and places these in a comparative European context.
Social Problems and Social Policy combines a broad foundation of sociological theory and research methods training with a more specific focus on the construction of social problems and attempts by policymakers to solve these. The different components of the programme combine to enhance your skills in applying social theory to deconstruct contemporary social issues from a range of critical perspectives....

Mission and Goals
In the urban planning spectrum, on the one hand, consolidation of a series of urban management activities that require advanced interpretation and application can be identified: the development of general urban planning tools; infrastructural, housing, transport, services and environmental policies; management of complex programmes and projects. On the other hand, the demand for new urban and territorial policies that require specific professional competence is increasing.
This Master of Science offers an advanced academic route in designing spatial arrangements and urban policies, to transform and manage the city, territory, and environment.
