Guides from other sites

Your home university also provides subject guides, often focusing on a specific programme:

  • CCCU (Politics and International Relations, Sociology).
  • Greenwich 
    (Criminology, Law, History Politics + Social Sciences).
  • Kent (Economics, Politics, SPSSR).


Welcome to this subject guide page for Social Sciences disciplines studied across the Universities at Medway. This includes but is not limited to:

  • Social policy, sociology and social research
  • Social Work
  • Criminology and criminal justice

Here you will find useful information resources specific to your discipline. Please note that each university will have its own unique set of subscriptions and access rights, this has been indicated wherever possible.

If you are having trouble accessing a resource via your University gateway, please email me, Karen Worden, for help.
