Social media


Keep up to date with what's going on in the SPS community through the School and subject area social media channels.


Student-led Blog

It Ain’t Necessarily So is a collaborative social science blog run by research students in SPS with the support of the Graduate School.

The blog is always looking for new contributors and staff writers, and its success depends on the interest and commitment of research and taught PG students. It is a fantastic community resource in SPS and also offers individuals a great chance to hone skills in knowledge exchange and writing for non-academic audiences.

School-led social media
