Starting from September 2016, the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and Ghent University join academic forces to offer you the runway launching your cosmopolitan future: the Bachelor of Science in Social Sciences (BScSS).

The BScSS was carefully designed to bring the best of sociology, political science and communication Studies together in a unique English taught bachelor programme. And when the best of the best collide, a challenging yet rewarding curriculum takes shape.Admission Requirements

The BScSS is an internationally accredited programme, meticulously developed by two well ranked universities. You have ample options afterwards to enter Master programmes at the UGhent, the Vrije Universiteit Brussel or abroad. Studying in the capital of Europe, enjoying guest lectures from people in the field, will definitely expand your network for future internships and jobs.
