Social Sciences Programme

This course enables students to develop research skills shared across the social sciences while specialising in your own area through one of our focused courses. As a student on the programme, students study approaches and methods available to social science researchers, and explore their implications, limits and uses.

Entry requirements

Normally an Honours degree, or equivalent, in a suitable subject; if students have suitable qualifications or experience they may be exempt from some modules; if English is not the student's 1st language they need an IELTS 6.5 score with a minimum of 5.5 in all skills, or equivalent. Alternatively a Sheffield Hallam University pre-sessional English course will enable students to achieve an equivalent English score.

Assessment methods

Essays, projects, presentations and dissertations.
