Equality and Diversity in Society

The Master's in Equality and Diversity in Society is grounded in the quest to 'provide an understanding of the long-term and underlying causes of disadvantage that need to be addressed by public policy' (Equalities Review, 2007: 13). To this end, the principle of equality and inclusion is embedded within and throughout the programme. The programme recognises that philosophers, economists, and political and social theorists debate the concepts of equality and diversity from a range of different perspectives; allowing the student to explore competing interpretations of what 'equality' and 'diversity' might mean in our society. Through engaging with 'the intellectual traditions and perspectives of the social science, students will be encouraged to explore social processes and the links between theory, policy and practice. It allows students to debate societal issues, and promote engagement with 'new ideas …. relating to issues such as the impact of globalisation on … social justice, sustainable development, social inclusion..'
This Master's Programme will extend professional knowledge and understanding and aims to develop reflective/reflexive practitioners through an integrated set of compulsory modules. This programme will give a sound understanding of equality and diversity and its implications for society, organisations, communities, families, individuals and policy-makers.
