Our landscape is steeped in history; from ancient brochs to traditions of story-telling, from Christianity to culture.

Social Sciences HNC

Find answers to the bigger questions in our society and see the world differently. We are all exposed to so much information in our daily lives that it can be difficult to assess what's real and what's fake.

Develop your critical thinking and complex problem solving abilities while looking for creative solutions to social, political and psychological problems.
