Social and political sciences come to life in the contemporary world through communication – inter-personal and with the community, and more widely in society and the global public sphere.

Combining social, political, historical and philosophical perspectives on how societies work, the course provides students with practical skills in qualitative and quantitative social research methods.  

Students learn how to understand social issues and how to think through ways of making a difference; how to research, communicate and plan contributions to national and international debates. 

The Communication (Social and Political Sciences) course at the University of Technology Sydney equips students with the knowledge and skills to be involved in diverse organisations engaging with social change.


Career options include research in think tanks and academia; policy research, analysis and program management in government; management in social services and welfare, including women's, migrant and Indigenous programs; and advocacy in environmental, Indigenous, human rights and overseas development organisations, as well as trade unions.
