Social Sciences Opportunities

Finding your Social Sciences funding opportunities

Postgraduate degrees in social science covers a wide range of subjects, from Anthropology through to Sport. A degree in social science is all about the creation of new knowledge through studying the behaviour of people, culture and the environment, and the ideas and attitudes that shape the world. 

Social science is studied through the behaviour of people and their interaction with the world, gender and identity, psychology, nationality and human rights, population, politics and international relations, media, geography, housing and public services.

The social sciences make sense of the discoveries that the other sciences identify, so the two fields support each other. Social science puts the outcomes of scientific discovery into the everyday. Social science subjects make important contributions to the way we live and work and our understanding of cultures and society.
