The School of Sociology and Social Policy (SSP) is a vibrant, diverse and exciting centre for social science teaching and research. We are a multidisciplinary unit covering criminology, public policy, social policy, social work and sociology. Cutting across these disciplinary boundaries are two shared values: the promotion of global and social justice and a desire in our teaching and research to ‘make a difference’.
