You will begin to understand what society is and how human behaviour and institutions like the government work together, amongst other broad topics within the social sciences. You will examine how social lives are constructed and consider the factors that affect how we interact, including class, race, gender, religion, family and nationality. You will gain a wide range of skills and develop your ability to think critically and analytically, giving you the transferable skills that are highly valued by many employers.
