Social Science Postgraduate Courses
The School of Social Sciences and Psychology at Western Sydney University believes that studying social life, community and organisations can 'make a difference' in the world.
Our staff are actively involved in studying relevant topics in the applied social sciences – topics such as ageing, the use of alcohol and other drugs, empowerment in the workplace, personality, therapies, equity and access, tourism management and urban management, among others.
There is a strong emphasis on our students moving beyond the University and working on projects with people in the community and workplace.
Our Social Sciences programs also boast:
- leading academics
- acclaimed research centres
- exciting career options
- a balance of theory and practical ﬁeld studies
- research opportunities
If you have an enquiring mind, and a burning desire to make a difference then our Social Sciences programs are for you.
