There is recognition that the underlying body of knowledge and theories surrounding equality, equity and diversity, which are directly linked to social policy, sociology and social and cultural theory, are essential in developing informed professionals. We offer a master degree in Equity and Diversity in Society at The University of Wales Trinity Saint David. 


This Master's Programme in Equity and Diversity in Society from The University of Wales Trinity Saint David will extend professional knowledge and understanding and aims to develop reflective/reflexive practitioners through an integrated set of compulsory modules.

The programme recognises that philosophers, economists, and political and social theorists debate the concepts of equality and diversity from a range of different perspectives; allowing the student to explore competing interpretations of what ‘equality’ and ‘diversity’ might mean in our society.

This programme will give a sound understanding of equality and diversity and its implications for society, organisations, communities, families, individuals and policy-makers.
