Applied Philosophy

This course is designed to build a bridge between the world of academic study and the �real� world of practical affairs and day to day life, especially for those working in areas which will benefit from the development of a dynamic relationship between theory and practice, such as criminal justice, education welfare, health services, housing welfare, social work and youth services. Candidates opting for this programme are thus encouraged to view theoretical analysis as an integral part of their daily praxis. This gives them the opportunity to reflect on and critically engage with the ideas and ideals which lie behind and underpin their work.
