Bachelor of Arts Applied Social Studies in Social Care
Why take this course?
This one-year add-on programme encourages and promotes the professional and personal development of students. Your ability to conceptualise, to draw conclusions based on a rigorous, analytical and critical approach to data, and to communicate effectively as part of a team will be enhanced. The degree will equip you with advanced levels of knowledge and skills appropriate to employment at a high level. You will be able, therefore, to discriminate between alternative management strategies and practices in social care work.
What will I experience?
You will also obtain a deeper understanding of your own goals and priorities, and a fuller awareness of your strengths, limitations and potential, through self-assessment, analysis and critical reflection. You will learn the ability to assume key roles in the management, administration, development and delivery of quality care services across a wide range of disciplines. Communities too will benefit, culturally, socially and economically, through the involvement of graduates in community-based project work.
This programme is also available on a part-time basis.
All students on this programme will undertake Garda vetting procedures prior to commencing their work placement. Failure to disclose previous convictions will result in students being dismissed from the programme. Previous convictions, depending on their nature, could result in student dismissal from the programme.
