Theory and practice
You will examine the complex ways in which human beings form relationships, societies and civilisations through your study of geography, sociology, history or the human mind. Theoretical learning will be enriched with practical applications, such as geographical fieldwork and archaeological excavations.
Across the humanities and social sciences department courses, you’ll learn a vast selection of transferable techniques and abilities that will be valuable in Higher Education and employment alike. Critical thinking, analysis, problem solving, observation and interpretation are just some of the talents that you will develop through your studies.
Some of our courses offer the exciting opportunities to travel to destinations such as Iceland, Toronto, Swaziland and Rome. Take your learning to the global stage and explore other cultures and countries in relation to your chosen subject.
