Bachelor of Social Science

The academic undergraduate degree of Bachelor of Social Science (B.Soc.Sc. or B.Soc.Sci.) requires three to four years of study at an institution of higher education, primarily found in the Commonwealth of Nations.

It can be distinguished from standard other undergraduate degrees as the Bachelor of Social Science is only focused on theory, social statistics, quantitative and qualitative social research, the philosophy of social science and the scientific method.


Disciplines and areas of study of the Bachelor of Social Science include Anthropology, Criminology, Economics, Environmental Planning, Geography, Community Development, Human Ecology, Human Services, International Development, Industrial Relations, Political Science, Psychology, Demography, Public Health, Public Policy, Sustainability, Statistics, and Sociology.

The Bachelor of Social Science can also be combined as a dual degree with a Bachelor of Arts, a Bachelor of Laws, a Bachelor of Education, a Bachelor of Social Work or a Bachelor of Economics. Studies and research can be advanced by an Honours degree and other postgraduate work. In previous years the bachelor's degree was looked as a gateway to a master's degree but due to education cutback the recent bachelors equivalent degree is a start to the doctored.
