The BSc (Hons) in Social Sciences is a novel, multidisciplinary research-active programme which is designed for students who are ‘socially curious’. It aims to develop graduates who have the critical thinking, problem-solving, personal attributes and communication skills needed to become leaders of social change. Dealing with poverty, boosting social justice and tackling oppression are some of the major challenges facing our society and economy. This demands sharp social science, which asks the difficult questions and finds answers to the challenges that society faces. This social science degree is therefore aimed at people who are interested in social and societal issues; it will ask the following questions – “What is wrong? What is right? What can be done about it?” Students will be equipped with a solid grounding in contemporary theories and conceptual models in social science and they will develop the research skills needed to critically evaluate current practice and policy, and in turn, inform future policy development in a rapidly changing political and social environment. Students will also be educated to use theories and their developing critical awareness to understand and address societal issues and real-world problems. A degree in Social Science provides excellent preparation for students wishing to pursue a wide range of professional careers.
