What is New Labour's social agenda? What do they mean by the 'third way' or 'social inclusion'?

These issues are some of those being addressed on a new MA course in Social Policy, which is being launched in the School of Social Work at the University of Leicester this autumn.

The Course Director, Dr. Robert Page - a leading commentator on the British Welfare State - said that there has never been a better time to study social policy: "We are witnessing dramatic changes in the welfare state and this new MA course will provide students with an excellent opportunity to explore these developments in depth.

"It is aimed at graduates or people with relevant professional experience and will provide them with a clear understanding of social policy issues that are directly relevant to the society we live in today."

Dr Page added that the course had been launched because of growing interest in the welfare reforms being pursued in Britain, Europe and beyond.

Open Days for those interested will be held on Friday, 9 July and Friday, 3 September at the University of Leicester, School of Social Work, 107 Princess Road East, Leicester, LE1 7LA. For further information, tel: 0116 - 2523766 or email: ljp11@le.ac.uk
