If you’re planning to pursue a degree in humanities and social sciences but still unsure where to enroll, we’ve got you fam!
But first things first, what is the concentration of this field?
The Humanities and Social Sciences are the studies of human behavior and interaction in social, cultural, environmental, economic, and political contexts.
In the simplest terms, taking a course under this field will help you improve your reading, writing, and speaking skills and understanding of social issues around you.
To help you decide where to enroll for this degree, we compiled a list of schools you can choose from!
Ateneo de Manila University, also known simply as the Ateneo de Manila or the Ateneo and abbreviated as AdMU, is a private Catholic Jesuit research university located in Quezon City, Philippines.
AdMU is a well-known university in the country that produces the best lawyers. It offers a degree in Diplomacy and International Relations which provides students with a disciplinary track covering history, foreign language, economics, and politics. While this program equips students to be competitive in diplomacy, it can also be a pre-law course! It allows you to not only be knowledgeable in Philippine Law but International Law as well.
Well, of course, this will not be completed without the country’s premier university – the University of the Philippines (UP). If you’re passionate about building communities and understanding the issues of the marginalized sectoral, then you can enroll in UP’s Community Development program.
This course covers disciplines applied in social action, development, policymaking, and organization. There is also fieldwork or a practicum included that will allow you to apply your lessons outside the classroom.
Possible career tracks include becoming a social worker, career advisor, or career in the education industry!
