Abertay’s fascinating Social Science degree provides you with the opportunity to study human behaviour and actions, offering you a broader scope than many conventional social science programmes.
This cross-disciplinary degree aims to develop your ability to think in different ways and acquire valuable intellectual skills, preparing you for working in an ever-changing, knowledge-based economy.
The curriculum of the Social Science (Hons) programme at Abertay University is built around a core module set, with a wide variety of options and modules available for you to build a programme that reflects your interests and preferences.
You can also organise your degree studies around a subject pathway preference from any of those on offer. This way, you can specialise in a particular subject stream, and will have this as a named component of your final degree award.
This degree prepares you for people-oriented jobs that require an understanding of how people think and act, and have high levels of interaction with others.
Our graduates have successfully gone into diverse fields such as social work, community education, teaching, care services, the police service and public relations work.
We're proud of our social science graduates who leave us with the ability to ask more questions than when they arrive. Our aim is not simply to produce graduates who 'know' the world, but who can interrogate ideas and generate creative and novel ways of dealing with issues and problems.
