Course summary

The MA in Applied Social Science is a exciting new master’s degree that began at the university in 2021. The MA has been developed to offer you the opportunity to engage with a number of subjects relevant to the voluntary and public sectors in the West Midlands area and beyond. It therefore provides a base for direct employment entry or enrolement onto the university’s PhD programme – or both. By way of example, one student on the MA is likely to move into full time employment in an addiction rehabilitation unit in Wolverhampton, whilst another has recently submitted a proposal for doctorate research on rural migration. The degree is delivered by a dedicated team of academics from Sociology and Social Policy at the university. In addition, several of the modules involve practitioners and managers from local voluntary organisations. The moduels are delivered from teaching rooms in the central hub of City Campus at Wolverhampton University. From September 2022, they are scheduled to run on Monday evenings and Wednesday afternoons and evenings. Part time students taking the MA over two years will have the option of taking the various options through evening classes.
