Human, Social and Political Sciences

The Human, Social and Political Sciences (HSPS) Tripos at Cambridge offers students the flexibility to explore papers taught primarily through the Departments of Politics and International Studies, Sociology, and Social Anthropology before pursuing advanced study in one or two specific subjects in the second and third years. The HSPS Tripos also offers a unique and exciting range of subjects to study from across the University, such as Archaeology and the Psychological and Behavioural Sciences. Students graduating with an HSPS Tripos from Cambridge have the advantage of specialising in one or two main subjects, but are also exposed to a broad background across the human, social, and political sciences, reflecting the inter-disciplinary world in which we live.
