Bachelor of Social Science
Griffith University - Nathan

Course outline

Social science explores the world’s complex social challenges and applies research and analysis to create positive change. You’ll study and debate some of society’s most intriguing issues, including sustainability, security, social justice and communication, along with the techniques to examine them and devise solutions using data analysis techniques. You’ll also develop the communication skills to collate and present your findings to decision-makers, allowing you to influence evidence-based solutions that can positively transform society. Solutions for contemporary challenges, such as climate change, will come from people who can not only interpret the data but also understand the need for social impact studies, policy development, and effective public communication. Social scientists work in these intersecting spaces, which is why they are in high demand across a broad range of careers. Our degree is built around a tailored employability framework, so you’ll have the tools and experience to start creating a successful and meaningful social science career, well before you graduate.
