Applied Social Science is the study of the society we live in and the relationships people have within that society. This course is built around the core disciplines of psychology and sociology, providing the best possible launching pad for a career in these fascinating areas. Innovative elective modules in the final years allow you to tailor your degree around your own areas of interest. All teaching is underpinned by research and real-world experience, ensuring you are prepared for a career in your chosen field. Approachable, friendly staff and relatively small group sizes create an informal learning environment, which is valued highly by our students.
