Bachelor of Arts in Social Sciences

General Content

Social sciences include four main disciplines: social and cultural anthropology, social policy, social psychology and sociology.

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.
