Social Sciences

Our dedicated academics are passionate about social justice and global responsibility, and look to deliver hands-on and engaging learning experiences. With a practical approach to social sciences, we contextualise your learning with object handling, facilitated classroom debates, and stimulating seminar discussions on subject material such as gender, sexual identity, political economy, criminal justice and issues in contemporary sociology.

Our graduates benefit from a wide-range of employment opportunities and now work in the voluntary, social research, cultural venues, and even the cabinet office. The practical nature of our courses actively encourages you to undertake placements and enhances your learning throughout, ultimately increasing your employability.

You’ll be studying in the heart of London, surrounded by the politicians, policy-makers and legislative bodies that define our society and culture.  Our central location enables students to network with large organisations, and to benefit from guest lecturers working in the industry.
