Why study Community Studies at Goldsmiths?
Goldsmiths is a creative university, and these are times for creative solutions in communities. Funding regimes and policy demand more and more complex partnerships between local people, local authorities, VCS bodies, professionals and service providers. Responding to need in creative ways is essential, and we work with students to develop a portfolio of creative community skills in areas as diverse as community arts, community engagement, community development, and youth work.
- As a youth or community worker you’ll be making sure that people reach their potential. You’ll help communities become more confident, learn new skills and cope with issues in their lives. You’ll gain the skills to relate to people from all backgrounds.
- You’ll study critical ideas, professional practices and creative solutions in the face of changing funding regimes and the demand for more complex partnerships between local people and local authorities.
- You’ll learn by experience – our teaching is made up not only of tutorials and lectures but also small group activities and practice-based placements.
