BSc (Hons) Health and Social Science

Course Overview

Our BSc (Hons) Health and Social Science programme offers students a stimulating and contemporary exploration of society’s complexities and the role of health and social sciences within it. With a focus on innovative research and cross-disciplinary approaches, the course provides a comprehensive understanding of contemporary issues.

Over three years, students engage with a diverse range of topics, including sociology, geography, social anthropology, social policy, and healthcare studies. Through lectures, seminars, and practical projects, students examine national and global social issues, as well as policy and practice intervention responses across government, the third sector, and human services.

The programme includes two 10-credit micro-modules at levels 4 and 5, focusing on transferable skills and knowledge essential for success in the health and social science sector. Covering areas such as career and employability, personal development, global citizenship, sustainability, digital literacy, and health and wellbeing, these modules provide students with in-demand skills and knowledge.

Thinking into Character (TiC): Embedded throughout the programme is our transformative Thinking into Character (TiC) programme, designed to support personal development and help students set and achieve their personal, educational, and career goals. By fostering character development and reflective thinking, TiC empowers students to become confident and ethical leaders.
