Does studying social science mean you’ll just be studying people and society?

Well, the social sciences essentially examine the relationship between individuals within society. But this is unbelievably broad, encompassing economics, politics, sociology, history, law and archaeology, to name but a few of the disciplines within social science.

What can you do with a degree in social science? Graduates are sought after in a variety of industries, particularly because of their advanced analytical and communication skills. Many businesses rely on social scientists to understand the attitudes of their consumers.

What types of courses and vocational training can you receive? The social sciences are very broad, so you can register for courses in fields ranging from Disaster Management to Collaborative Conflict Resolution. Still not impressed? Well, if you’re looking for a field with real scope, you couldn’t get more far-reaching than the social sciences!

Learners choose from diplomas programmes as far flung as Technology, focusing on Journalism and Mass Communication, all the way to Environmental Project Management. At the degree level your options are numerous and depend on the area in which you’d like to specialise.

You could graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology, Religious Studies, International Relations or even Penology (that’s the study of crime and prisons!). Your other options include a Bachelor of Technology in Information Studies, or a Bachelor of Science in Counselling Psychology.

Ready to set yourself apart with a postgraduate degree? Search your options with Brighter Monday Learning, where you’ll find everything from Masters Degrees in Literature, Gender Studies and Development, to PhD’s in Environmental Economics, Anthropology or Theology.
