Direct your own learning with a broad-based training in the social sciences. Course aims: This course offers you a broad-based training in the social sciences. It will appeal if you are interested in the social sciences in general and do not wish to specialise in one discipline. You will take an interdisciplinary approach to the analysis of social issues. In Year 1 you will be introduced to social policy, sociology, economics, psychology, politics and research methods. During the final two years of the course, you can continue taking a broad-based approach, or choose to specialise in specific areas. You will continue to study compulsory units in research methods.
