Social Anthropology and Philosophy is a pathway within the BA (Social Sciences) degree or BASS for short. The BA (Social Sciences) at Manchester is designed to give you maximum flexibility and choice. If you know that you are interested in the social sciences, but fancy a chance to try out a range of different topics, this could be the degree for you. When you apply you select one of the ten joint pathways of the BA (Social Sciences), each of which has its own unique course code. Although you'll start off on your chosen two-subject pathway, by Year 2 you can take a minimum of three subjects and a maximum of five and you can specialise in any one or two subjects in your final year. In every subject you are given a wide range of course units to choose from, and a high degree of flexibility in the way in which you combine them as your academic interests develop. The six main subject areas are: Social Anthropology: The study of societies and cultures across the globe in comparative perspective. Philosophy: The study of fundamental questions such as the nature of knowledge, truth and values. Philosophy also encourages greater consideration of our reasoning, judgement and ethics. Sociology: The study of society and examines such issues as social inequalities and forms of everyday life. Quantitative Methods :The study of data and analysis to understand the social world. Politics: The study of human organization, government and power. Politics examines and evaluates political systems and institutions. Criminology: The study of the causes and consequences of crime.
