The need for environmentally sustainable and equitable development is one of the most serious issues facing the contemporary world. The Development Studies - Social Science program at the University of Newcastle provides opportunities to study the causes and consequences of unequal development and assess policy options for a more equitable and sustainable future.
Social science provides you with the opportunity to analyse, challenge and gain an insight into theories about life cycle, gender, class, race, work, social justice and social organisation. Social science theories are the result of systematic thinking, observations and reflection, and contribute to political and moral debate in society, rather than dictate precise answers to complex social problems.
