Applied Social Studies - Social Care professionals work with a wide variety of client groups such as people with disabilities, children and young people, members of the Traveller Community, homeless people, elderly people, asylum seekers and people with mental health difficulties. They work in a variety of settings including residential services, community settings and training and education services.

This degree is internationally recognised so it equips people to work in Ireland but also in many other countries around the world.

The course is taught through lectures, tutorials and practicals. Students also go on a number of work placements in years 2, 3 and 4. These work placements provide students with the chance to apply the theory they have learnt in their lectures to the real-world of social care. The teaching staff has worked in various areas of Social Care for many years and will share their expertise and experience so that students will, after four years, be very highly qualified and trained to work to an excellent standard as social care professionals.
