Our students of today are our leaders of tomorrow. If this statement is true then what kind of graduate does South Africa need? Boston City Campus and Business College (Boston) is a leading provider of Business Management training in South Africa. They have now taken up the challenge to further build South Africa with an exciting move into social science qualifications, starting with an innovative Bachelor of Social Science (BSocSci) that includes a range of Boston’s tried and tested business management subjects as electives.
What can you do with a Degree in Social Science?
The short answer is that you can do a lot. Your social science degree prepares you for many careers in many fields. Social science is a powerful academic foundation that provides you with the opportunity to develop skills employers value in employees. These include: oral and written communication, interpersonal, teamwork, technical, analytical, critical thinking, organizational, and problem solving skills.
Remember that your social science major, in and of itself, does not determine your career path. No major subject does — not business, not psychology, not biology. According to Dr Linda Meyer, Dean: Institutional Advancement at Boston, “Your social science degree prepares you for many careers in many fields.”

Social sciences improve our everyday experience of life, by helping us to build or create better institutions and systems. This is why British employers, according to Prof James Wilsdon, “are queuing up to hire social science graduates.”
