Social science

Making sense of our complex lives

Explore issues such as how laws govern our way of life and find out which sectors of society are most at risk of discrimination.

Perhaps you're interested in the study of law and want to take your first steps on the legal career ladder. Maybe you want to understand how criminology intersects with the science of psychology to help us discern why crimes are committed. Perhaps you're keen to develop your own political voice or examine the actions of international organisations, nation-states and non-state actors. You might want to study sociology and the way music, poverty and the rights of individuals are interlinked with our understanding of ‘society’. Whatever your interests, studying social sciences at LJMU will help to broaden your horizons and develop your thinking.
