Community and Youth Work

Why study Community and Youth Work

The Department of Applied Social Studies has earned an unrivalled reputation for teaching, research and development, as evidenced by our leading role in achieving the establishment of professional endorsement of both community work and youth work on an all- Ireland basis.

The Department is also home to both the Centre for Youth Research and Development and the Centre for Rights, Recognition and Redistribution. Our mission is “to contribute to human rights, social justice and equality nationally and internationally through excellence in education for and development of the applied social professions, through innovative academic education and research in the social sciences and associated public contribution.”
