Develop your knowledge and understanding of political concepts and theories relevant to the relationship between the state and the individual. Learners will be expected to study up to 3 hours in college as well as self-directed study of 8 hours per week. Individual PDAs can be self-funded however, four PDAs (Psychology, Sociology, Politics and History) can be undertaken to achieve an overall HNC Social Sciences award over 2 years. Please see our HNC Social Sciences (Part Time Evening) for this option. HNC Social Sciences can allow entry to 1st or 2nd year of related undergraduate courses including: Social Sciences, Psychology, Politics, History, Archaeology, International Relations, Criminology, Law and Sociology.
As this course is at SCQF Level 7 (first year undergraduate level) applicants are required to demonstrate an ability to work at this academic level. This can be through proven prior study, employment and workplace practice or through a diagnostic assessment undertaken at college prior to entry.
