Social Sciences departments offer a wide range of diverse, stimulating and high quality undergraduate, postgraduate taught and postgraduate research programmes, all of which are underpinned by the innovative research being undertaken by our academics. Degrees range from lab-based science in departments such as Geography and Archaeology, through to the professionally-oriented provision in Business and Education. A number of part-time postgraduate taught and postgraduate research programmes are also offered.


For undergraduates

Social Sciences departments offer nine undergraduate programmes, all leading to a BA (Hons) degree. Some are in single academic disciplines and others are joint degrees combining one or more subjects from the social sciences and/or humanities.
All but one (Law with Law Studies in Europe) are three years in duration.
