Program description

Society, Politics and Policy BA (Full-time)

This undergraduate honours degree offers a broad and innovative approach to the study of social sciences. You’ll explore how social policy is created through the lenses of sociology and politics. Employing this joint approach, you’ll examine how the relationship between national governments and their citizens is changing and how this affects contemporary issues such as work, education, equalities, human rights and social justice.

Our Society, Politics and Policy BA (Hons) course offers a unique approach to the study of social sciences, as it draws knowledge from two different disciplines of sociology and politics. Throughout the course you’ll encounter contemporary case studies and we’ll encourage you to think outside the box in order to analyse how politics influences society and vice versa. You’ll get the opportunity to specialise in topics that interest you such as Latin American politics, gender and sexuality, human rights and conflict.

Our course is an excellent opportunity to expand your views, as it’ll provide you with the tools and understanding to reflect on contemporary politics and how it affects you. You’ll also have the opportunity to contribute to your classmates’ learning by sharing the experience of living in your own society, whether that’s in London or abroad.
