Why Choose the Social Sciences at Fife College?
Life is one big system of chaos, driven by human behaviour and relationships. If you want to understand more about how societies establish resilient structures to maintain social order as well as promote policy, democracy and equality then choose one of our courses in social science.
You will gain a vast range of knowledge and understanding of society, culture and human interaction and learn to perceive the world in a different way.
Whichever path you take you will leave with a well-rounded transferable skillset, ready to specialise in your chosen area and find employment opportunities in private, public and voluntary sector organisations.
