In Political Science we study all aspects of political life worldwide. Political Science comprises four main areas of study. Comparative Politics examines and compares the political institutions and societies of particular countries, International Relations focus on the relations between states, their foreign policies, and international organizations like the UN and NATO. Political Theory examines theories about politics and society, Public Policy explores and evaluates the processes by which national, regional and local institutions of the state formulate and implement policies.
Sociology helps you to understand the questions below: have you ever wondered how globalization is changing social life today? Why popular culture is increasing dominated by 'reality' TV and media coverage of ‘celebrities’? How digital media – iPods, mobile phones, Facebook and the rest of the internet – shape our social lives and sense of self? And etc. Sociologists seek a systematic understanding of the patterns of actions and beliefs that characterize contemporary societies.

The Bachelor of Pharmacy offers student to gain broad training in physical and biological sciences, knowledge of drugs and their effects, and the application of this knowledge to the individual, the ability to provide advice and pharmacy care to consumers, and a scientific approach which will permit critical appraisal of development in pharmaceutical sciences. Pharmacist is one of the most accessible health professionals and work closely with patients to assist them with managing their medicines and disease states as well as promoting health and improving quality of life. Student will study pharmaceutical science and pharmacology in a bachelor of Pharmacy degree or as a degree itself separately. Pharmaceutical Science is the study of the science underpinning pharmacy. Chemistry is important through all stages of pharmaceutical production from drug design, synthesis, biological action, formulation and delivery. Pharmacology is the study of how drugs act on the cells and organs of the body, and the individual proteins and molecules with which they interact. Pharmacologist identifies and validates novel drug targets and develops future drugs for treatment of diseases.
Careers: Registered pharmacists work in pharmaceutics, community-practice-based pharmacy and hospital-based pharmacy areas. In industry, pharmacists are involved in the development, testing, manufacture, evaluation and quality control of drugs. Pharmaceutical scientists work in pharmaceutical Science industry to develop, manufacture and commercialise medicines to improve quality of life and treat and prevent diseases.
Physics is the most fundamental of the sciences dedicated to the study of energy, matter, space and time and reaches from the quark out to the largest of galaxies, and encompasses all the matter and timescales within these extremes. Classical physics became a distinct science around the 16th century and the 'classical laws' were identified over the subsequent years. By the early 20th century, it was believed that almost all the physical laws of the universe were discovered with only a few minor details that required attention. These minor details led to the wonders of Modern Physics, including Quantum physics and Relativity. From Galileo and Newton to Einstein, discoveries in Physics have raised many philosophical questions. At the heart of a professional physicist is a fascination with the "how and why" of the material world around us. Other courses related to Physics including Mathematics, Astrophysics, Theoretical Physics, Engineering and students can further their studies in Modern Optics, Semiconductor Physics and Quantum Mechanics, Nano science, Electromagnetism and Atomic and Nuclear Physics.
Careers: Most employment opportunities for physicists exist in hands-on research, development and teaching roles often within the resource and environmental management industries, medical laboratories and institutions, software and telecommunications companies and other technological research and educational organisations.
Psychology is the scientific study of human behaviour, about how people think, act, react and interact. To enjoy psychology one needs a curiosity about human behaviour, relationships, skills and abilities and a matching enthusiasm for discovering how to explain them. Psychologists scientifically study all kinds of behaviour and the thoughts, feelings, and motivations underlying behaviour. Psychology examines questions such as: how do people act on a first date? How can we ease the effects of parental divorce on children? How can we help people to overcome depression or phobias? By collecting information about what people do, think, perceive and feel, psychologists answer questions about human behaviour, cognition and development.
Counselling is about listening to people, and enabling them to explore issues which are important to them. Studying both subjects provides a greater variety of career options because they develop skills and knowledge that are critical when working with individuals.
