Subject in detail
We offer a broad-based training in the social sciences. This is especially appropriate if you are interested in the social sciences in general, and do not wish to specialise in one particular discipline.
In the first year, you can follow units in sociology, social policy, psychology, economics, politics and languages.
During the final two years of the programme, you can either continue with this broad-based approach, or choose to specialise in one or two main areas.

Lead lectures, tutor-led seminars and tutorials, student-led seminars, IT practical sessions, practical workshops and problem-based learning scenarios.
Methods of assessment
Written unseen examinations, seen examinations, coursework, practical presentations (group and individual), placement report, research reports, dissertation.
