MSc Social Innovation

Social innovation – or the development of new ideas, services and models to better address social issues – is a concept that has become known world-wide over the last couple of decades. Social innovation often involves the empowerment of disadvantaged groups and the restructuring of power relations in the ways they are implemented.  Designed to develop your knowledge and expertise in this exciting field of study, the MSc Social Innovation from Glasgow Caledonian University shares its home with the Yunus Centre for Social Business and Health - GCU's world-leading research centre.
