Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Community Development and Youth Work
The meaning of community development and youth work can be interpreted and understood in a variety of ways. It is apparent in today's contemporary societies that inequalities exist, environments are under increasing pressure and for some individuals, human rights remain unfulfilled.
The Community Development and Youth Work degree is designed to enable graduates to become critical thinkers and to work with diverse groups of people across the lifespan. The degree encourages learners to engage in dialogue, lectures, group work, on-line learning, case studies and complete practice placements.
Through these interactions learners develop skills, knowledge and practice to work in community development and youth work. The graduate as a critical thinker may work with different groups to promote social inclusion and transformation.
This programme is professional endorsed by The All-Ireland Endorsement Body for Community Work Education and Training (AIEB) and the North South Education and Training Standards Committee for Youth Work (NSETS).
