Open University in Scotland

Content

This is one of several specialist routes available in the BA (Honours) Social Sciences (R23) degree. Half of your studies will be in interdisciplinary social science and sociology giving you a firm grounding in knowledge and ideas central to the social sciences. For the other half, you’ll first explore psychology through a range of real-world issues including love, sexuality and artificial intelligence before opting to study either social psychology or counselling and forensic psychology.

On completion of this degree, you’ll be able to apply psychological and social theories to a broad range of practical and real world issues, using data analysis and analytical techniques to understand a variety of topics that affect individuals and society. You’ll also have gained a wide range of transferable skills – opening up employment opportunities in private, public and voluntary sector organisations.
