If you have a keen social conscience and would like to spend your career investigating society’s key challenges, then the Bachelor of Social and Economic Policy (Sociology) lets you explore how social, economic and political factors help shape human actions in modern society.
You’ll develop a solid grounding in the social sciences, which will help you gain skills to analyse social and economic issues in the real world. The course will see you investigate social policy reform matters from a distinctive perspective thanks to Canberra’s location as the centre of federal and ACT government socio-economic policy design, implementation and evaluation.
The course’s flexibility allows for a variety of subject areas and disciplines to be explored, including international relations and political science, as well as business, management, law and commerce.
On top of analytical and critical thinking skills, you’ll gain experience in research and data analysis, providing you with practical abilities for a contemporary policy and analysis career. Upon graduation, you’ll be ready for a range of roles which may include working within the government, private, not-for-profit or community sectors. Or if further learning is your preferred next-step, you’ll be well-prepared to engage in study for a Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours) degree.
