  • Objectives
    The purpose of the MA Housing and Inclusion is to give students the opportunity to obtain relevant skills and knowledge, including students either working or seeking to work in the fields of specialised and supported housing provision. Students will study housing law and finance, some aspects of housing management, the policy and context of social housing and approaches to regeneration. Students will also focus on the needs of tenants, who increasingly constitute a disadvantaged and excluded population. You will also evaluate approaches to empowerment, inclusion and support. The course will also equip you with the knowledge and skills appropriate to working in partnerships with many organisations and with appropriate generic skills to work on managing a wide range of housing and support activities. Students will have the opportunity to draw upon the highly respected research-based expertise and specialist knowledge within the Department of Applied Social Sciences in areas such as housing-based community regeneration, the housing needs of refugees and asylum seekers, victims of domestic violence, the elderly, the homeless and people with mental and physical health problems. Students will also have the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and skills in public sector management or community development. An application has been made for accreditation by the Chartered Institute of Housing, the main professional organisation for social housing practitioners.

However, applicants who do not meet this requirement but have substantial experience in a relevant area of employment may also be considered and are therefore encouraged to apply.

    Career opportunities
    Organisations responsible for housing provision are becoming increasingly specialised and are focusing on specific functions. Social housing has moved from a mainstream tenure of choice to one that provides for those experiencing some kind of disadvantage, disability or marginalisation from society. This means that an increasing number of tenants have need for specialised help or support. There are likely to be a growing number of posts in housing requiring the sorts of specialist skills and knowledge that this course will provide.
