Our students and staff give you an insight into the majors within the Social Sciences discipline!

Philosophy, Politics and Economics: A wide variety of societal problems require a political solution, have an important economic dimension, and present ethical dilemmas. This includes contemporary challenges ranging from immigration to democratic representation in the European Union, and from global development to corporate disasters. The major Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) provides for an integrative approach to solving such problems in a sustainable way.
Cognition and Behaviour: The Cognition and Behaviour Major covers an exciting and rapidly developing field of science. At its heart lies understanding the human mind: cognition and neuroscience. But at UCG we do not just study the minds of isolated individuals. The human mind has a social dimension: it allows us to communicate, to have moral convictions, to develop cultures, and to form societies. So, at UCG we study the human mind in connection with the social environment that shapes it, that it responds to and that itself is shaped by the behaviour of many individuals.
