Social Sciences (Geography)

Open University in Scotland

Content

This is one of several specialist routes available in our BA (Honours) Social Sciences degree. Half of your studies will be in interdisciplinary social sciences. For the other half, you’ll learn how key geographical concepts can be applied to some of the most pressing challenges of the twenty-first century, including globalisation, development, climate change, migration and urbanisation.

On completion of your degree, you’ll be able to apply geographical and social theories to current debates, analyse and assess different types of evidence, including statistical data, to a variety of topics that affect individuals and society, and you’ll acquire a wide range of transferable skills – opening up employment opportunities in private, public and voluntary sector organisations.
