Join our world!
As one of the biggest and best schools for social science in Europe, the School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research (SSPSSR) attracts students from all over the world. We're interested in making a difference. We don’t just explore how society works but whether we can make it better.
SSPSSR is part of the Division for the Study of Law, Society and Social Justice (LSSJ). LSSJ is a large, diverse, multidisciplinary Division that strives to engage critically with social justice practices and projects at home and around the world. Our shared goal is to interrogate how we can make society work better for all.
We can't wait to welcome you to Kent but, until then, we'll keep this page updated with lots of helpful information, resources and links. Get in touch if you have any questions!
