The dynamic, award-winning BSc Community Development and Public Policy with Foundation Year will provide students with the theoretical knowledge and practice-based skills to develop or advance a career in community work. Communities and charities are at the forefront of current policy and cutting-edge thinking around democratic and social renewal. The sector is also undergoing a transformation through its enhanced role in welfare delivery at a time of austerity and increased demand for its services. Students will learn about the latest theoretical and policy developments in the areas of community development and public policy, including the Big Society agenda. Students will critically reflect on these issues and the role of community development in public policy, focusing particularly on governance, citizenship, equality and diversity, partnership working and community engagement. Students will also develop practical skills in project management, leadership, policy analysis and evaluation. This course is designed for anyone working with, or who has an interest in, communities. This course is based at Birkbeck’s Stratford campus, though some option modules can be taken at the campus in central London. Graduates can pursue careers in voluntary sector organisations, local government and education. This degree may also be useful in becoming a charity officer, civil service administrator, local government officer or social researcher.
