Social Sciences

Social scientists look at the way individuals interact with each other and the environment. Their laboratory is the world itself, and during our bachelor’s degree in social sciences program, you’ll learn to see the world in new ways, uncovering insights only observable to the trained eye.  

Bureaucracy, technology, urbanization and industrialization have radically transformed the way we live and what we believe. By focusing on the areas of communication, economics, history, management, political science, psychology and sociology, you will learn the new techniques and knowledge you need to investigate the workings and development of society as it is today.
