Geography and Planning
Learn about the social forces that shape our society and spaces we live in. You'll discover a variety of techniques for 'reading' cities and spaces while examining public planning and design. At the same time you'll explore political and democratic factors that influence the manifestation of human society.
Linguistics is the study of language as a human communication system. Your study will focus on the structure, and how language is acquired and used throughout the world. Units of study in Linguistics complement other disciplines such as education, psychology, languages, media and communications, computer science, science and law.
Psychology is the scientific study of behaviour—our individual characteristics and abilities. Your study with us will be diverse: you'll investigate human behaviour, social groups, and brain cell function while learning about both quantitative and qualitative methodologies.
Sociologists examine issues such as changes in family life, social factors shaping health, life chances, social inequalities, lifestyle and consumption, social policy, urban life, and comparative societies and development.
