Explore the subjects you like and experience new ones

Human, Social, and Political Sciences (HSPS) at Cambridge can be tailored from the start. This means it’s suited both to those with specific subject interests and to those looking for a multidisciplinary degree.

The course comprises three core disciplines, taught by globally respected departments:

  • Politics and International Relations explores politics within and between countries, covering issues from human rights and democracy, to financial crises and international conflict.
  • Social anthropologists address ‘what it is to be human’ by studying social and cultural diversity – how people live, think and relate to each other around the world.
  • Sociology focuses on the nature of modern societies and the processes that shape social life, by examining social institutions and topics such as power and inequality.

After Cambridge

The analytical and critical skills, intellectual versatility, multicultural sensitivity and international outlook you develop through this course are widely sought after by employers. Recent graduates have pursued careers in research (both academic and policy research), the Civil Service (including the Foreign Office), journalism, management consultancy, national and international NGOs and development agencies, the Law, teaching, publishing, health management, and public relations.
