Enhancing learning and teaching about mental health across the disciplines
At the BSA conference in Newcastle last month, the BSA Sociologists outside Academia (SoA) group launched its model curriculum in applied sociology. This will now be offered free to UK sociology departments, to use within their undergraduate programmes. It can be downloaded from the curriculum website.
The curriculum is a key element in SoA’s initiative to encourage and develop sociology as an applied occupation across the UK’s public, commercial and voluntary sectors. Applied sociology is defined in the curriculum as ‘solution-focused sociology, analysing and intervening to address, resolve or improve everyday real-world situations, problems and interactions practically and creatively’.
