Work for social justice with a BA (Social Policy)
At Massey you’ll get the skills you need for a meaningful career in social policy.
What is it Like?
If you are fascinated by how and why power, resources and opportunities are distributed within society, then Massey’s BA (Social Policy) is for you.
You will gain an understanding of the political, economic, social and cultural factors that influence the development, implementation and evaluation of social policy in Aotearoa New Zealand.
You will study law, politics - and the roles of central and local government in a democratic society. This will lead to insights into the relationship between the state, political parties, the judiciary, the legal system - and the public in shaping legislation and developing policy.
Your BA (Social Policy) will give you the knowledge and competencies you need to start your career as a policy analyst and researcher. You will learn a range of intellectual and practical skills that will stand you in good stead in the job market.
This qualification opens up a world of opportunity to be involved in influencing a broad number of social issue outcomes (e.g healthy housing, youth development, Maori wellbeing, health promotion, gender analysis of policy), not only from a Government-down position, but also from an individual-, community- and society-up perspective.
You will learn to apply your critical social policy analysis skills to a number of decision-making scenarios to result in better social outcomes. This decision-making can take many forms including a policy, project plan, submission, or even the strategic direction of an organization.
You could work in areas such as:
One of the strengths of the Social Policy major is its interdisciplinary nature. You are able to choose courses from a variety of subjects to suit your interests. The 100-level introductory Social Policy course forms the foundation for the advanced theory and research courses at 200-level and 300-level. Social Policy offers a range of interesting and highly relevant courses, each taught by staff actively engaged in research.
Social Policy Major
