Course Description

BA (Hons) Social Science



Whether your interest is in progressing towards a career in the field of social care, professional social research or policy analysis, or whether you are interested in a broad-based undergraduate education, the BA (Hons) in Social Science is the degree for you. Social Science is the interdisciplinary study of human society. It draws upon disciplines such as sociology, psychology, anthropology, and applied social studies such as social policy analysis and social work. The hallmark of the BA (Hons) in Social Science is to provide the intellectual rigour of the older disciplines and to emphasise the practical aspects of social science research.

From social policy and aging to language and crime, learners will be challenged to think in a rigorous and scientific way about social processes, institutions and policies. From the first to the final year of the programme there is a consistent emphasis on training learners to carry out their own research and to critically challenge the world around them.
