Career Progression Opportunities
Students will be able to apply the skills they have learned during the Diploma programme to a variety of areas of work, especially in the public sector, including social care, social work, community youth work, and community development work. Others working in policing and nursing vocations will also find the components of the programme of value. Indeed, many students find that studying these modules increases their awareness and knowledge of salient issues affecting society, thereby increasing their confidence in discussing and debating such important topics.
Further Study Options
On successful completion of this programme and all related assessment, students may choose to progress onto the BA (Hons) Social Science evening degree at DBS School of Arts and receive an exemption from the two modules at degree level (minimum entry requirements apply).
Typically participants on the programme have a general interest in the area of the social sciences and consequently wish to pursue this interest by entering and completing the Diploma in Social Science. Other students undertake the diploma as an introduction to studying in the multidisciplinary field of the social sciences and then, having successfully completed the diploma (and having met minimum entry requirements for modular students), proceed to study on the BA (Hons) Social Science in DBS School of Arts.
