Bachelor of Arts in Social Sciences

The degree course follows a largely interdisciplinary approach and strives to explain both the general functioning of societies and their diversity. Studies in the field of social science provide the epistemological framework required to understand the social environments in which individuals live and develop. They also lead to analysis of the representations and practices of individuals in relation to their social living conditions from the perspectives of culture, economics and politics.

The Bachelor of Arts in Social Sciences comprises one main discipline, the Major in Social Sciences, and a secondary discipline, the Minor, to be chosen from the list below.


  • History
  • Psychology
  • Political Science
  • Sport Sciences and Physical Education
  • Personal Project
