Social Sciences

The BSc Social Sciences is a flexible, interdisciplinary degree that will give you the theoretical tools and knowledge to better understand the social-political world, why social inequality persists and how your own life experiences intersect with wider social structures, such as 'race', class and gender. The knowledge and skills that you will build on this programme are highly valued in today's world of work and will build your capacity as a thinker, communicator and analyst. The course is structured around four courses that cover the fundamentals of social theory, social and public policy, and research methods. You can choose from over 30 option modules each year from across the School of Social Science, History and Philosophy, so you can make the degree your own, focusing on your own interests, strengths and experiences. BSc Social Sciences students come from a range of backgrounds and pursue a wide spectrum of careers, including in central or local government, public policy, cultural industries, enterprise, social research and journalism. You will study in the evening alongside London's working professionals and be taught by academics who are world-leading researchers and experts in their field, committed to engaging and participatory teaching.
