Do you have an enquiring mind and an interest in the world around you? The Department of Applied Social Sciences brings together a range of disciplines that encourage a greater understanding of social issues, human behaviour and the ever-changing political landscape. Our courses promote analytic and conceptual skills, sharp thinking and an understanding of research, all of which are essential in today’s workplace.
We offer undergraduate programmes in Psychology, Sociology, Politics and International Relations and Politics and Governance. Teaching in all disciplines is complemented by staff who are engaged in a wide range of research activity.
