**Why study this course?**
This four-year course includes a foundation year to prepare you for degree-level study if you don't have the traditional qualifications usually required for entry. It's an excellent way to get a taste of a range of social science and humanities subjects including health and social care, social work, education, criminology, media, journalism and community development. At the end of your foundation year, you can decide which subject you'd like to study at a degree level, such as our Criminology and Law BA, Media and Communications BSc or Journalism BA.
**More about this course**
The Social Sciences and Humanities Extended Degree BA begins with a foundation year that, if passed successfully, allows you to continue on to a related undergraduate course. This is helpful if you don't have the required qualifications to start a full undergraduate degree and are unsure about the exact subject you'd like to study.
The first year of this course, Year 0, will engage your interest in a range of issues within the social sciences and humanities, such as social policy, media and criminology. Core modules you will study include Culture, Family and Power, Critical thinking and Reflecting on Self and Society.
These Year 0 topics focus on improving your academic and study skills, thereby boosting your confidence and unlocking your potential for further study. Successfully pass the foundation year, and you can continue onto study one of our many undergraduate degrees in a related field, including Youth Studies BSc, Sociology BSc and Criminology BSc.
The courses related your Social Sciences and Humanities Extended Degree make use of London Met's many facilities, such as Journalism BA with its newsroom containing Apple Mac computers, flat screen TVs and video cameras, and the Translation BA with its interpreting suite.
