Access to Higher Education Diploma (Social Science)

To make a difference in our local communities, we need to understand both society and people as individuals. Social science is a field of study that looks in-depth at human behaviour and how it influences the way that we structure our lives. Many different topics integrate with this branch of learning and it relates to sectors including politics, social work, economics, psychology, local government and policing. Learning more about society can help us to create safer places to live, eradicate poverty and promote education. If you want to build a career in social science, but don’t have the right qualifications, we can help.

The Access to HE Diploma (Social Science) is an online course that will prepare you for a wide range of degree programmes. Complete your studies from home and develop the skills and confidence to apply for university. Social science graduates can go on to work in industries including education, mental health, social work and probation services.

This course is split into two separate pathways, enabling you to select modules that match your career ambitions:

Our two Access to HE Diploma (Social Science) pathways:

  1. Psychology & Sociology – explore topics including cognitive psychology and sociology of the mass media.
  2. Psychology with Criminology – find out more about subjects such as the psychology of mental illness, and understanding crime and deviance.
