15.02.2016

Social Studies and Social Inclusion students at University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD) will receive a guest lecture from a Houses of Parliament Officer. 

Liz Price, Senior Community Outreach and Engagement Officer at the Houses of Parliament will talk to UWTSD MSocStud Social Studies and BA Social Inclusion on the 17th February 2016. The lecture will take place at UWTSD Carmarthen as a prelude to the students’ educational visit to The Houses of Parliament on March 10th and 11th.

The educational visit will give students the opportunity to watch business in The House of Lords or select committees and observe business at The House of Commons Chamber.

This visit will afford students the opportunity to obtain first-hand knowledge of how Parliament works and facilitate links between theory practice and Policy; essential elements of the critical writing requirements in their course of study, namely either the Integrated Masters-Social Studies or B.A. Social Inclusion.

The School of Social Justice and Inclusion at UWTSD sits within the Faculty of Education and Communities. Students engage in a range of academic studies across a number of campuses as well as within the wider community at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. An understanding of how society works and how our social structures such as children, family, learning and community are organised are vital for any aspiring social scientist who seeks a fulfilling career that can develop both individual as well as social ambitions.

The School promotes knowledge, understanding and engagement with key significant societal issues and values both within a historical and a contemporary context.  In this way the School ensures that graduates possess the knowledge and skills to enable them to successfully achieve as active citizens within a global and sustainable community.
