The Social Science degree provides an excellent opportunity to do an inter-disciplinary degree: combining the theories and methods of separate disciplines to increase knowledge and understanding. This degree allows students to study across the social science spectrum – anthropology, criminology, education, psychology, sociology, social policy – and think outside of conventional disciplinary boundaries.
Topics such as the body, childhood, crime, development, health, gender, poverty and race are studied from a variety of perspectives. Leading universities throughout the world now give special value to interdisciplinarity and the Social Science degree creates a unique context to learn how to think and research in this way.
This is also currently the only social science undergraduate degree in a UK School of Social Science accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). The Social Science BPS Pathway is an opportunity to study people’s thoughts, feelings and actions in their social, cultural and political circumstances and offers graduate membership to the BPS which is the first step to becoming a chartered psychologist.

Please note: From 2015 the single honours social science degree will no longer offer a BPS accredited route.
For entry in 2014 to the social science degree, please contact an admissions tutor to enquire if there are spaces on the BPS accredited route.
