Bachelor of Arts (BA) Administration and Social Justice, University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur

The programme offers a mixture of Social Policy, Social Welfare and Social Work, Social Law and even containing some Public and Social Management. This particular mix, allied of course to the Malaysian orientation of much of the syllabus, makes the programme unique. It accurately reflects the needs of Malaysia at the present stage of its economic and social development.

The inclusion of practical placements or a semi-vocational course in the programme provides opportunity to put into practice lessons learned in the lecture room. Our students value this element, believing it to provide them with an opportunity to test out possible careers.
