As the home to some of the top universities in the world, the US is a great place to study for a social science degree.

Undergraduate programmes in the US are typically four years long and include the opportunity to study multiple subjects in the first two years, before specialising in the second half of your degree.

Subjects you study alongside your specialisation are known as minors, and your specialisation is your major, or special concentration. This format allows for a great level of flexibility and allows students to get a real grounding across the social sciences.

What is theology?

Theology is the study of religion. It examines the human experience of faith, and how different people and cultures express it. Theologians examine the many different religions of the world and their impact on society. Today we are more aware than ever of the profound influence religion has on us, even if we do not follow it ourselves. Understanding this can help us understand the laws, wars, traditions and morals of our own society and that of others.

What is history?

History is the study of the sum of human experience. It is concerned with the past and its present legacy.

The study of history develops an array of skills including independent critical thinking, analytical skills, the ability to process and synthesise vast amounts of information - which is crucial in our world overflowed with information - and to engage in a historiographical debate.

This means that history is among the university subjects where you have to read the most material.
