Administrative/Biographical history:

A social studies course was first introduced in 1941 at the then Chelsea Polytechnic to help train Red Cross and civil defence workers for social work after the war. This led to the creation in 1970 of the Department of Sociology and Psychology that aimed to cover work in social and behavioural sciences, including a postgraduate course in Social Work Studies and a two-year MSc course, which also led to the Certificate of Qualification in Social Work. The Department Sociology and Psychology was closed at the end of 1983.
