Many social science subjects provide fascinating insights into everyday life in our communities, families and workplaces. Topics include criminology, economics, geography, media studies, politics, psychology, social policy and sociology. In our courses you’ll engage with some of the most compelling and contested questions in contemporary society: How do we communicate with each other? Why do places carry meaning for people? What are our rights as citizens? What shapes our identity and why? Our courses will stimulate your curiosity, encourage you to ask questions and challenge assumptions, and help you understand yourself - and the world we live in - more deeply.
