Do you see yourself at the forefront of tackling some of the most crucial and pressing social, ecological, and economic issues of our time? Do you regard yourself as ambitious and driven with a strong tendency for leadership, innovation, and a different way of thinking and acting about local, national, and global issues? Then the new and innovative Applied Social Sciences Degree is for you!
This new program—beginning in 2017—is aimed at motivated school leavers and mature students with a strong penchant for the study of fundamental issues and concerns in the social sciences. The program will strongly focus on the applied nature of the Social Sciences and equip students with practical research skills, in addition to focusing on career development and readiness and further educational opportunities.
There will be an internship and a dissertation or project component to the program, giving students real-world experience and knowledge of working in areas of Social Scientific inquiry. The growth in interdisciplinary study and research is building knowledge and the national capacity to respond to complex societal challenges by providing new solutions that cannot be provided by one discipline alone. This innovative transdisciplinary degree program will draw on the key strengths of Schools and Disciplines right across the College of Arts, Research Institutes and Centres, and innovation and entrepreneurship programs across the University.
Supporting and advocating the value of Social Scientific research to key decision-makers and policy designers, in addition to community activism and advocacy, will form an intrinsic part of the new program ethos.
