Program Overview

Students on this course will consider a variety of issues and perspectives surrounding deaf people and their relationship with society.  You will study and critically analyse key issues for social care in a contemporary setting, the impact these social issues have on people’s lives and how they are dealt with. In studying social care and deaf studies, you will gain a deeper insight into the experiences of those who are engaged in the social care sector whether as professionals, paid carers or service users.

What happens on the course?

  • Your first year studies will give you knowledge of deafness and the lives of deaf people. Studying communication issues especially the learning of British Sign Language will support your understanding of minority and diverse groups in society. You will study the social groups most likely to be in need of social care services and take a comprehensive look at how social care services are organised. You will have the chance to undertake a period of supervised voluntary work in a voluntary or community-based organisation.
  • In your second year you will expand your knowledge of deaf children and their development. You will explore the management and provision of contemporary social care services. You can continue to learn British Sign Language at Intermediate level and will have an opportunity to develop research skills essential to year 3 study.
  • This final year encourages the development of analytical skills to compare the provision and delivery of social care within European states and to further explore quality care and support services, especially with regard to issues such as staff management, health and safety, and financial management. As well as the opportunity to continue to develop BSL skills you will also study modules related to deaf art and literature and campaigning. Final year studies include a full analysis of critical issues affecting the lives of deaf and disabled people. You will learn to analyse requirements, policies and funding in the context of the above groups.
