Social Science Courses

Understanding what drives modern society is why we study social sciences. This knowledge allows us to make positive and significant changes to at least ourselves, if not the broader community. This is why our Social Science degrees rank among the most exciting and important programs at UWS.

Many of the UWS Social Sciences programs lead to professional recognition in areas such as:

  • social work
  • counselling
  • urban planning
  • community welfare
  • art therapy
  • policing
