Welcome to the School of Health and Society– a forward-thinking, dynamic school with a commitment to lifelong learning and real world impact.

We are one of the largest educators of nurses, midwives and allied health and social care professionals in the North West, known for our track record of collaborating with a wide range of industry partners across health and social care to produce highly skilled graduates, with real work experience.

Salford has a rich history and an exciting future; we sit at the heart of the Northern Powerhouse, and actively engage with stakeholders across the region to address the identified health and social care outcomes linked to the devolution of power to Greater Manchester's local authorities. We have always been committed to addressing the needs and aspirations of our local community.

We are also experts in the social sciences sector and are known locally, regionally, nationally and internationally for our applied research into the interface between culture, digital, health, wellbeing, housing, criminal justice and social care. We effect social and cultural change by research- informed engagement and practice.

The Sociology, Criminology and Social Policy group is a vibrant and research active part of the School. It has a portfolio of research-led undergraduate and postgraduate taught programmes and CPD for related professionals. The group has a strong national and international research profile with significant funded projects and publications across Sociology, Criminology, and Social Policy plus an increasing number of PhD candidates including funded study opportunities. It has a strong presence in local, regional, national and international criminal justice, cultural and social policy networks.

We are proud that we have a diverse population of students including a significant proportion of care experienced people and refugees.

Our research has international significance and includes major public health initiatives in Uganda; the experience of women and young people in prison and comparative studies of Islamic criminal justice systems.
