Social Sciences

Let’s look beyond the individual. Let’s look at the impact of society on people and cultures.

Social Sciences at the University of Central Lancashire brings to life the all the aspects concerned about society and how we live, to life through applied learning and interaction.

How does society work? What makes one society different from another? At the University of Central Lancashire you’ll be encouraged to look beyond the everyday to understand contemporary society and how it shapes our lives.

Be prepared to have your intellect stretched and your prejudices challenged. Each aspect covered will have far reaching impact on how we live and its influence on religion, education, politics and social matters.

You will explore, debate and analyse belief systems and social challenges from a local, national and international perspective.
