Apa yang akan saya pelajari?

Social Science studies how human societies are organised, analysing the social forces that govern the world we live in and their impact on individuals, families, communities and countries. Students learn about social professions such as social work, community work and youth work and analyse contemporary issues in society, especially Irish society - such as drugs, criminal justice, migration, ageing and inequality. The Social Science programme emphasises the study of applied social science through the subject Social Policy. This subject, which can only be taken through the BSocSc degree, is concerned with critical analysis of policies and practices in relation to human welfare and well being.

Career Options

Social Science provides a valuable academic foundation for many vocations and occupations.

Our graduates can also be found in a wide range of other careers including management and public administration, the Non-Governmental Organisations (NGO) sector, journalism, the media and social research.

If you wish to become a professional social worker, you must undertake the National Qualification in Social Work (the accrediting body is CORÚ; visit their website at Most social workers qualify by completing a Bachelor of Social Science first and then a Masters in Social Work.
