Similar courses to Social Sciences BSC (Bath)Watch
I'm strongly considering applying to Bath to study Social Sciences Bsc, the thing I most like about the course is studying economics, a little bit of politics, international development and potentially a language. Furthermore the grade requirements are more achievable for me, based on AS results and predicted grades. (ABB)
Other places that do Social Sciences are York, Cardiff, but they don't seem to offer any economics based units, instead focusing more on sociology and psychology which I'd prefer not to focus on.
Are there any courses similar to the Bath Social Sciences course, without applying for Economics with Politics?(which has much higher grade requirements A*AA at top places)
I can't help but feel I will struggle with writing the personal statement, and applying to 5 places unless the course is very similar
I think I will apply for (after much decision making and mind changing):
Sussex- International Development AAB
Leeds- International Development ABB
East Anglia - International Development ABB
Edinburgh- Sustainable Development AAB/ABB
Bath- International Development with Economics although I'm still not entirely sure about this one AAB
Sorry I'm ranting on about myself but maybe this helps give you an idea of what you can do. Look closely into the course modules as you may find they're more open than you think
Have you visited Bath yet? I loved it when I looked around, and the economics department is very good.
Birkbeck (Uni of London) - Economic and Social Policy
Bangor - Social Policy and Economics
Essex - Economic Analysis for Public Policy
Warwick - Economic Studies and Global Sustainable Development
Bath Spa - Global Development and Sustainability
Also look at 'area studies' courses - Asian Studies, American Studies, Middle Eastern Studies etc - will include Social Science/Economics aspects of those areas, and usually a Year Abroad.
Have you had a look at BA in Quantitative Social Sciences at The University of Sheffield? It's an interdisciplinary course that specialises in teaching the latest quantitative research methods, which is a big element in Economics. You'll also get to choose between three study strands which have been tailored to complement the quantatitive core study strand, they are:
- Politics, Sociology and Criminology
- Georgraphy, Urban Studies and Planning and Landscape
- Management studies
There is also an opportunity to study a language with our Lanaguage For All programme and the free module choice.
