The UWS BA (Hons) in Social Sciences focuses on the central themes of social justice, power and inequalities.
The first two years of this degree equip you with a firm grounding in the essential disciplines of politics, policy and sociology.
After this, you can choose to follow one of three specialist pathways:
Politics and Policy (Paisley Campus)
Sociology and Policy (Paisley Campus)
Sociology (Lanarkshire Campus)
Investigating social and political change, you will explore both how we understand society and how we can change it for the better, developing your critical thinking alongside a wide range of research and transferable skills that are highly valued by the public, private and voluntary sectors.
