Bachelor of Social Science

BA-SSC1 Undergraduate Hawthorn

This course has been discontinued - this course is closed for new enrolments, the information on this page is provided for continuing students.

This course introduces students to the study of individuals, groups and human societies and explores how social relationships and institutions shape individuals, and how they, in turn, have the capacity to shape these social institutions. Students will develop a theoretical insight into their chosen discipline, enabling them to understand current developments in society and the workplace, and to adapt and respond appropriately to future developments as they occur, both nationally and internationally.
Students will undertake a professional major in an area of specialisation, and combine it with either a co-major or two minors. There is a range of co-majors and minors available, which add depth or breadth to one's degree.
