Awarded by: The Open University

This is one of several specialist routes available in our BA (Honours) Social Sciences (R23) degree. Half of your studies will be in interdisciplinary social science and sociology, giving you a firm grounding in knowledge and ideas central to the social sciences. For the other half, you’ll explore the fundamentals of political theory, examining the debates and conflicts inherent in a modern democracy. You’ll have an opportunity to focus on either international politics or contemporary political ideas. On completion of your degree, you’ll be able to apply political and social theories and analytical techniques to a variety of applied topics that affect individuals and society, and you’ll acquire a wide range of transferable skills – opening up employment opportunities in private, public and voluntary sector organisations.
