Our experts in social science and sociology subjects have shared their extensive experience and qualifications, to develop distance learning courses to Help You gain a well-grounded understanding of human relationships and social interaction. 

It is important not to underestimate the importance of social science to enable the smooth running of societies and for future planning. It is used in economics, education and politics, and covers historical subjects like archaeology, which have contributed to how individuals interact with each other today.

Learning about societal relationships is a fascinating area of study and no more so than when you complete a social science course with ADL. One of the attractions is that you can feel close to the subject because of its direct relevance to what happens in the society you are part of.

This could be in Adventure Tourism, Business Marketing Strategy, Caring for Elderly People, Communication and Motivation, Criminal or Educational Psychology, Ethics and Social Psychology, plus many others delivered by ADL.

The knowledge and skills you will gain from our courses, can be applied to all walks of life and a wide range of careers. Therefore, social science programs are very popular for continuing professional development or CPD. Teachers can understand how children learn, employers and managers can learn to recognise the signs of criminal activity within their organisations, and parents can be better parents by leaning about Child Psychology. Right across the breadth and depth of society, our courses are relevant and up-to-date.
