This course gives you the opportunity to study the Social Sciences in detail. There are two pathways at this level, either NC Level 6 where you study Psychology, Sociology, History, Literature and Crime Scenes, or a Higher Level 6 programme which includes Psychology, Politics, English and Sociology.
