Social Sciences

Course Summary

Our Social Sciences course is specifically designed to provide you with choice and flexibility. The core modules of Sociology or History both allow you to develop your critical analysis skills and place your learning in context. Through Academic Skills you will be equipped with essential foundations in analytical and problem-solving skills.

This course allows you to combine modules from across the Warwick IFP in ways not possible in other courses. Modules such as Psychology and Constitutional Law and Human Rights, or Politics and Economics can be combined to create a programme of study to match your interests. The Criminology module, unique to the Social Science course, also demonstrates the potential breadth of learning.

Lectures and seminars provide the academic framework for the Social Sciences course and are complemented by a range of other activities such as case-studies, modelling and project work. You will have plenty of contact with staff who will teach you, with 18 hours per week of contact time and up to 5 hours per week of English Language. This will leave any remaining time for independent learning, researching and preparing for assessments, lectures and seminars. Assessments will take a variety of different forms allowing you to demonstrate a range of skills.
