Social Science

This innovative new degree provides a unique
opportunity for you to combine knowledge from different
disciplines and develop an advanced understanding
of the social relations and structures, and social and
psychological processes occurring in the world. At the
heart of this degree is an exploration of how societies vary
across space and time, having a distinctive geography and
history that is reflected in a wide range of global, social,
political, cultural and economic processes.
Taught by world-leading staff in the Institute of
Geography, History, Politics and Psychology, the degree
will enable you to build an inter-disciplinary social
science degree. It will also enable you to specialise in different areas of human geography, politics, psychology,
and history. The degree employs a range of assessment
methods, and there are opportunities to undertake social
science research in overseas destinations (currently New
York or Dublin).
