The Faculty of Social Sciences

With the world changing rapidly, and seemingly unpredictably, there is no better time to study Social Sciences. Whatever field you choose, our faculty prides itself on combining excellence and innovation in the classroom with global excellence in research.

Through these commitments, we hope to open your minds to new ideas and information, hone your critical analytic skills and provide you with the communication and research tools needed to understand and engage in the contemporary world. A degree in the Social Sciences provides you with the knowledge and tools needed for personal and career success, and to make a difference in our world.
