The Master of Social Sciences (MSocSci) degree in the School of Social Sciences is a flagship programme at Bangor University. It is the first of its kind in Wales and the UK. It combines three years of undergraduate study and an additional year at Masters level. We are offering MSocSci in each of our existing undergraduate degree disciplines. Our new four-year MSocSci programme builds on the rigour of our three-year undergraduate courses. This qualification will give you a competitive edge in the labour market. Employers need you to have a range of transferable skills. The MSocSci combines traditional study, team working and applied social research in a vibrant learning environment. As this is an extended undergraduate programme (also known as an integrated Master’s programme), your fourth year of study is funded in the same way as the first three years of your undergraduate degree. Students registered for a BA (joint or single honours) or BSc degree (single honours) may transfer to the MSocSci at the end of Year 2 or Year 3 subject to achieving an average of 50% in each relevant year. Students registered for an MSocSci may transfer to a BA or BSc at any point during the first three years. Why choose Bangor University for this course? We aim to provide a friendly and informal learning environment. The course structure is flexible enough to offer a range of specialisms and a breadth of choice. The course is taught by experts in the subject who aim to be innovative and to meet real needs. We use a variety of learning approaches, and as well as the development of personal skills we emphasise the development of practical skills in observation, interpretation, information processing and presentation, all of which will be valued by employers. There is the opportunity to spend a year abroad as part of the degree.
For details of the modular structure, please see the course description on Bangor University's website.
