Bachelor Social Science

New Course in 2015 at University of Wollongong

I recently visited the University of Wollongong main campus and was truly excited by the facilities, the staff and the students that I met. Wollongong is an obvious choice for Oxley students- whether they want to move out or stay in the Highlands. The Moss Vale campus of Wollongong University offers Business, Commerce and Arts degrees so you could earn a degree while staying close to family and work opportunities. One new course being offered in 2015  is ideal for the many students who are not really sure about what they want to study. The course is the Bachelor of Social Sciences. Students of this course choose a major of one of the following: Criminology; Human Geography; Psychology; Public and Population Health; Social Marketing; Social Policy; or Sociology, and minor studies can be included from any other subject at the University.
