This flexible, multidisciplinary degree prepares you to meet the demands of a rapidly changing community and housing landscape. It will give you the knowledge, skills and practical experience to make a difference to communities and shape change while opening up a wide range of career paths.
The degree suits those already working in housing and looking to develop their role as well as anyone interested in pursuing a career in community work including housing. You study core topics such as the history and development of housing systems, policy and practice; current housing policy in theory and practice; and work and welfare in the 21st century. You can also follow your interests with topics such as urban ethnography; international housing; gentrification and class distinction; and rural and urban communities.
The course’s flexible approach means you can choose a study path that fits your work and family commitments, from the traditional full-time, three-year degree to part-time; blended learning; and condensed days on campus.
