Key contacts

Students studying in SPS will have contact with a range of academic staff from the Departments of Politics, Social Policy  Sociology and Philosophy.

However, in all four departments there are a group of core staff who share a commitment to interdisciplinary work across the four subjects and who are taking a lead in the administration and organisation of SPS.

If you have any questions about SPS you should first contact the School Coordinator Debbie Banerjee on 01904 321477 or email her at

Debbie is based in the SPS Office which can be found on the Ground Floor of the Department of Social Policy and Social Work in Alcuin C Block in room A/C/008a. During term time the office is generally open Monday to Friday from 9am to 12.30pm and 1pm to 3pm. When the SPS Office is closed please send Debbie an email or leave a message at the Social Policy and Social Work Reception.
