The College of Social Science offers undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in a range of subjects, including sport and exercise science, law, education, health and social care, psychology, and social and political sciences.
Students within the College have access to a range of inspirational learning spaces. The Human Performance Centre includes physiology, biochemistry, and dedicated biomechanics laboratories, and an ‘endless pool’ for research into swimming and triathlon. The £19 million Sarah Swift Building features clinical suites and specialist laboratories for health and social care and psychology students. Law students can use a moot court to practise their mooting skills.
At Lincoln, the employability of our graduates is at the core of our programmes and all students within the College of Social Science can access the Work Opportunities Hub.
The Hub is available to support students who are seeking to enhance their studies by engaging with a variety of work settings. This may be as part of their programme or as an activity during term time or holidays. The College is committed to promoting work opportunities to enable students to be work ready and to make informed future career choices.
We aim to provide a supportive, research-rich environment to help you build the knowledge and skills to develop your career. Research within the College of Social Science is diverse. Students can benefit from the research expertise of academics and may have the opportunity to engage with major research projects. Psychology students can participate in initiatives such as ‘Summer Scientist’. The event involves the participation of children between the ages of three and 10 in a series of accessible games and activities which explore different aspects of cognitive development.
The Professional Development Centre offers continuing professional development for qualified practitioners in a variety of sectors including nursing, care, teaching, social work, legal, emergency services, criminal justice, medicine, and the third sector.
