Society, Politics and Policy BSc Hons

The degree programme Society, Politics and Policy is aimed at students who want to study a range of social science disciplines and subjects within an interdisciplinary framework which emphasises the way in which the constituent subject-disciplines are interrelated and complement each other. The central disciplines that underpin this new programme are Political Science, Social Policy and Sociology. The central philosophy of the programme is that students will receive grounding in these core subject areas whilst at the same time developing a critical understanding of the ways in which the boundaries between them are fluid and the focus of each is often complementary to the others. Career prospects Graduates are equipped with invaluable attributes and key transferable skills much sought after in the public, private and voluntary sectors. Graduates work in teaching, health and social care, public services, politics, and research. Close links are maintained with UWS Careers and Employability Services and careers staff will input into the programme at various stages. Further study The course can lead to further study on a variety of postgraduate programmes. The MSc Applied Social Science offered within the School would be an ideal next step.
