Student reviews

I found this module to be very engaging. It is an excellent starting point to the social sciences as it provides an interdisciplinary approach by introducing different social science concepts and theories from a broad spectrum. Highly recommended!

DD103 is a logical step up from DD102. However, be prepared and do not take it as a first module - it is more difficult, compared to DD102. Yes, it does build on the knowledge from DD102, but it expands it and adds new angles. Whilst it is still level 1, you are required to more or less know already how to reference or write essays - but of course there are still activities, forums and tutor to help you.
