HSPS is one of the most diverse and international subject communities in our College. In addition to our undergraduates, we have a strong postgraduate presence, with over twenty MPhil and PhD Anthropologists, Criminologists, Sociologists and Political Scientists, alongside research and teaching staff.

The BA in Human, Social and Political Sciences is a broad, flexible degree, enabling students to sample new subjects such as Archaeology, Biological Anthropology and Psychology, as well as pursuing focussed pathways in Politics and International Relations, Sociology, and Social Anthropology. It offers a springboard into a huge variety of careers, from journalism and public relations to law, heritage management and international development.

Admissions Assessment

  • Most applicants are required to take a subject-specific written admission assessment, either pre-interview or at interview. These assessments are designed to supplement the information in your application and provide a gauge of your abilities - to assess skills, such as comprehension and thinking skills, and levels of knowledge and understanding, relevant to your course.
