CASE Social Sciences
If you find people fascinating, or wonder about why we do what we do, have a passion to expand your knowledge about the world and the big challenges facing humanity in the 21st Century, then the Social Sciences are for you.
The Social Sciences include fields of study that focus on our culturally diverse, complex and dynamic social world. At James Cook University the Social Sciences academic group is broad and varied. Our staff conduct research and teaching in the areas of Anthropology, Archaeology, Criminology, International Relations, Political Science, and Sociology. You can specialise in one or more Social Sciences disciplines by enrolling in a Bachelor of Arts, which is regularly reviewed by the Bachelor of Arts Advisory Group .
Your career opportunities can be found in agencies that focus on social and community planning, cultural heritage, tourism, social and criminal justice, as well as aid organisations. You could work in indigenous organisations, policy development, social research, and the corporate world. You will be able to make a valuable contribution to important global challenges we face in the world today.
We also offer further study through our Honours program, Master of Social Science, as well as higher degree research programs if you are seeking a professional career as an anthropologist, archaeologist, criminologist, political scientist or sociologist.
