Social and Political Sciences BSc (Hons)

This interdisciplinary degree combines the study of society with cultural and political processes which shape human experience. As a Social and Political Sciences student, you will study the organisation and structure of society and consider the changing nature of human action, as well as the political theories that structure our political systems and the social forces that shape political life. You’ll gain expertise in analysis, research, critical thinking and more as you develop an understanding of key topics.

In addition to areas such as comparative politics and central problems in sociology, you’ll use examples from around the world to gain a firm grounding in the institutions and practices of modern political systems while exploring social values and the impact of social divisions.
