The BA Hons Social Sciences course introduces you to a range of social science disciplines before allowing to specialise in politics, policy and or sociology combinations.

This suite of degrees offers a foundation of broad-based social science skills with a strong emphasis on developing problem-solving skills across the first two years. After this foundation, you can elect to follow one of three specialist pathways, highlighting in-depth disciplinary knowledge in either Politics and Policy, Sociology, or Sociology and Policy.

Additionally, you will develop your research and inquiry skills throughout the degree from first year through to the final year dissertation. In fact, you will develop your knowledge and understanding of social science and engage with classical and contemporary social science theory and research.
