The University of New South Wales (UNSW Sydney)

Program Overview

During your studies, you will develop the critical and analytical thinking needed for the successful completion of the research-based honours year.


Through the Bachelor of Social Science component, you will develop the knowledge and skills to understand, analyse and influence. You'll undertake a core program that covers social science, policy analysis and research methods, and combine this with a choice of a major and an internship.
