Applied Social Sciences BSc (Hons)
This innovative degree breaks down the boundaries between different social science disciplines. In the first year you'll study two or three subjects, examining societal issues from various points of view. In the second year you choose a major and a minor subject, which you'll study for the rest of the course.

These are the subjects:

* Criminology
* Education, Culture and Childhood
* Human Geography
* Journalism
* Physical Geography
* Politics
* Sociology
* Social policy
* Urban Studies

Throughout the course, you'll get training in the quantitative and qualitative methods of social science research. You'll learn how to present research findings and data in a variety of formats.

Every first-year student gets valuable experience working on a project with an external client such as a business or a local government department. In the second year you can go on a work placement or take a module in entrepreneurial skills. This course is also available as a part time route over six years.

We offer both BA and BSc degrees for the Applied Social Sciences course, but you'll only need to apply for the BSc option if you intend to take Physical Geography as your major pathway. All other pathways will be for the BA option.
