Overview

The international jobs market of the near future is going to need a different kind of social sciences graduate. Employers will expect you to have more than area of expertise. We’re leading the way with this innovative new degree.

Work experience and practical skills are a big part of the course. There are opportunities to go on work placements for a short period or for a whole year and you’ll learn methods used by the world’s leading researchers.

Programme structure

In the first year you’ll study two or three subjects, examining social issues from various points of view. In the second year you choose a major and a minor subject which you’ll study for the rest of the course. These are the subjects:

- Criminology
- Education, Culture and Childhood
- Human Geography
- Journalism
- Physical Geography
- Politics
- Sociology
- Social Policy
- Urban Studies

Throughout the course, you’ll get training in the quantitative and qualitative methods of social sciences research. You’ll learn how to present research findings and data in a variety of formats.

Career opportunities

Our courses have been designed to meet the growing demand for social science researchers with quantitative data skills. You might choose to apply your skills in the public or private sector, for a charity or an NGO. If you’re interested in starting your own business, we can help you prepare for that too.
