Department of Social Sciences

Welcome to the Department of Social Sciences

At the Department of Social Sciences we pride ourselves on the accessibility of our programmes and the diversity of our students. Our aim is to offer university standard programmes for students from the West of Ireland, who may not be able to relocate to bigger cities but still want the opportunity to receive a world-class education.

Who we are

We have lecturers who are true masters in their industry with years of experience under their belts. Our Department of Social Sciences is the largest within the Faculty of Business and Social Sciences catering to over 650 students. The four level 8 degree programmes we offer here are: Early Childhood Care and Education, English and Psychology, Social Care Practice and Sociology and Politics.

What type of student are you?

You will be an empathetic person who is looking to make a change in society through helping others. You will be a people person who has a curiosity for others, no matter who they are or what their background is.
