Why this Course?

This four-year course prepares students to work a rewarding career in social care, a profession characterised by working in partnership with people who experience marginalisation, or disadvantage, or who have special needs. Students will explore and analyse the development of current and future trends in social care in Ireland and how legislation in this area is drafted and regulated.

As well as learning about different models of social care and their appropriateness to different situations, you will also learn how to deliver a social care service, both alone and as part of a team, to people in community, day-care and residential settings.
