The School of Social Sciences (SSS) is home to research and education in Economics, Psychology, Sociology and Public Policy and Global Affairs. SSS offers study programmes in a range of subjects at both undergraduate and graduate levels, from a BSocSci (Hons) in a Single or Double Major and MSc (by coursework) to MA (by research) and PhD.
At present, SSS has nearly 100 faculty members and around 1,700 students across our undergraduate degree programmes. Students also have the opportunity to choose interdisciplinary studies in Economics and Data Science, or double majors such as Economics and Media Analytics, Economics & Public Policy and Global Affairs.
The School has three interdisciplinary research clusters, namely Global Asia, Environment and Sustainability, and Science and Society as strategic areas of research, which also include a significant dimension of international collaboration and exchange.
Economic principles underpin decision making in areas such as consumption and production, competition and trade, banking and finance, economic development and policies, as well as social issues relating to poverty, equality, health, and the environment.
Psychology is the scientific study of human behaviour and cognition and is a multifaceted discipline that traverses various fields such as anthropology, biology, neuroscience, philosophy, and sociology.
Public Policy and Global Affairs
The Public Policy and Global Affairs curriculum focuses on helping students to gain multidimensional practical knowledge in areas such as policy analysis, public financial management, international politics, and comparative public administration.
