School of Social and Political Science: Undergraduate study


Degree Options

This programme addresses global issues related to sustainability and sustainable development, primarily through multidisciplinary social science teaching, focusing on the social consequences of current patterns of development and opportunities for change.

At the same time you will develop understanding of the key scientific debates and the ability to evaluate scientific knowledge and practices concerning sustainable development.

This degree is structured to provide each student with core (required) sustainable development courses, but also the chance to focus on a particular 'pathway' (or main subject area) throughout their four-year degree. The five possible 'pathways' are: Politics, International Relations, Sociology, Social Anthropology or Geography.

In addition to the 'pathway' and core sustainable development courses, students will also have the chance to choose outside options from a wide range of additional subject areas, including Art, Divinity, Education, History, Classics, Archaeology, Law, Literatures, Languages and Cultures, Business, Philosophy, Psychology, Economics, Physics, Astronomy or Biomedical Sciences.
