Do you want to bring about positive change in your community? Do you have a passion for working with disadvantaged or marginalised communities, to help improve life-chances and tackle inequality and discrimination? Did you know you can study one day per week to gain a professionally accredited degree in Community Development? Come along to our Drop-In Information Session to meet the course team and find out more about the course, including what topics you will study, costs and sources of funding.

If you are working or volunteering with marginalised or disadvantaged communities, this course will equip you with the skills and knowledge to enable you to make positive changes by empowering others, developing leadership capacity and tackling social and economic inequalities.

The BSc Hons Community Development (part-time) is open to anyone who has experience working or volunteering in the community or voluntary sector and who has Grade C GCSE English or equivalent. The degree runs over one day per week (Thursday) from 9:30am -4:30pm for four years. There are exit points along the degree which allow you to opt out an earlier point with a Certificate or Diploma.

The course covers topics such as community development and informal education, conflict resolution and peace-building, managing community projects, diversity, equality and power. You will also have opportunities to apply your learning in real life situations of work-based learning. The degree is underpinned by the core values of community development and is nationally accredited by the Endorsement Standards Board (UK) and the All-Ireland Endorsement Board.
