About us

School of Social Science

Why study social science with us?

Group of female students

We strive to understand, analyse, describe and explain the human world and our position in it to make sense of our rapidly changing global culture. Our academics conduct research into various fields including: anti-corruption and criminal justice, child and youth development, international studies, journalism, sociology, philosophy and public relations, communication and media studies, geography and environmental science. As part of this school, you'll be rubbing shoulders with world-class policy makers and social information leaders.
