About

This Sociology (Youth, Community and Social Regeneration) programme at University of Limerick aims to equip students with the skills necessary to engage with contemporary theoretical, policy and practice-related issues relating to work and study with young people in the national and international context of community regeneration.

The Sociology (Youth, Community and Social Regeneration) course at University of Limerick offers a critical forum where the complexities of social regeneration can be addressed. It builds upon existing research and teaching strengths at undergraduate and postgraduate levels within the Department of Sociology, namely inequality and social exclusion; the welfare state; social change; youth and community, social regeneration and sociological research methods.
