School of Social Science

Why study social science with us?

Group of female students

We strive to understand, analyse, describe and explain the human world and our position in it -to make sense of our rapidly changing global culture. Our academics are conducting research into anti-corruption and criminal justice, meaning that as part of this school you'll be rubbing shoulders with world-class policy makers and social information leaders.

Hear from the head of our school, Associate Professor Anna-Mart van Wyk.

Professional recognition

Our degrees are relevant and professionally recognised. The newly created Bachelor of Social Science degree is designed to align more closely with prospective employers' expectations - you'll leave Monash with a distinctive edge over your BA peers, especially when applying for jobs. And you can specialise in fields like psychology (the ten unit major is accredited by the Health Professions Council of South Africa and Psychological Society of South Africa), international studies, child and youth development and media and communication.
