The Social Sciences and Humanities Extended Degree BA begins with a foundation year that, if passed successfully, allows you to continue on to a related undergraduate course. This is helpful if you don’t have the required qualifications to start a full undergraduate degree and are unsure about the exact subject you’d like to study. The first year of this course, Year 0, will engage your interest in a range of issues within the social sciences and humanities, such as social policy, media and criminology. Core modules you will study include Culture, Family and Power, Critical thinking and Reflecting on Self and Society. These Year 0 topics focus on improving your academic and study skills, thereby boosting your confidence and unlocking your potential for further study. Successfully pass the foundation year, and you can continue onto study one of our many undergraduate degrees in a related field, including Youth Studies BSc, Sociology BSc and Criminology BSc.
