BA (Honours) Social Sciences

In a fast-changing world the social sciences seek answers to the big questions we face as a society. Those answers inform the work of anyone needing to base their decisions on the best available evidence ? civil servants, policy makers, business executives and many more. Half of your studies will be interdisciplinary social science and sociology, giving you a firm grounding in knowledge and ideas central to the social sciences. For the other half, you can specialise in criminology, economics, geography, politics, philosophy, psychology, religious studies or sociology, or you can choose a combination of modules that most suits your interests. Whatever path you take, you will acquire valuable transferable skills opening up employment opportunities in private, public and voluntary sector organisations.

BA (Honours) Geography free course icon

Society, Politics & Law 

BA (Honours) Geography

You'll explore how geography makes a difference to how we understand and might respond to global challenges such as poverty, climate change, migration and urbanisation. By studying places, landscapes, and issues located in space and time, you'll deepen your understanding of the relationships between human and natural environments, and how those relationships are in turn shaped by distinctive patterns of social, cultural, economic and political dynamics. As you combine this knowledge and understanding with the skills that you'll develop through virtual fieldwork in generating, interpreting, and communicating geographical imagination, you'll work towards a project to complete your degree.
