The School has renamed the SSS degree titles to the Bachelor of Social Sciences. The decision for this renaming was taken after extensive consultation with our current students, our alumni and other stakeholders. 

The renaming will apply to all SSS degree programmes starting with the cohorts that matriculated in 2017 and will be graduating in 2021. Students who matriculated in 2017, 2018 and 2019 will have the option of graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree, if they choose. 

Students are encouraged to explore subjects of interest beyond their areas of specialisation and complement their respective Majors by taking up a Minor.

To minor in any of the programmes in SSS, students must complete at least five (5) courses, which include compulsory and elective courses. These courses are taken as Broadening & Deepening Electives.
