Applied Social Sciences

BA (Hons)
BA (Hons) Applied Social Sciences

The Applied Social Sciences degree from Robert Gordon University is built around the core disciplines of psychology and sociology, providing the best possible launching pad for a career in these fascinating areas. You will learn about the society we live in and the relationships people have within that society.

Our teaching is underpinned by research and real-world experience, so that you are prepared for a career in your chosen field. Approachable, friendly staff, and relatively small group sizes create a more informal learning environment, which is valued highly by our students. Innovative elective modules in the final years allow you to tailor your degree around your own areas of interest; preparing you for a rewarding career in your field of interest. 

After Year 2 you will have the option to specialise in Psychology or Sociology, or you can continue studying a mixture of both through the Applied Social Sciences route.

We’re ranked 2nd in Scotland and in the top 3 in the UK* for overall student satisfaction in Social Sciences (National Student Survey 2022, *excluding colleges, small, specialist and private institutions).
