Join us for this student-centered panel event bringing together academics, practitioners and students to discuss the value and contribution of the social sciences. Panellists will speak about the questions and issues that university students told us that they want to hear about.

This Social Sciences Week event focuses on how social science concepts, methods and skills are used outside the University, every day, and in a range of professions. Panellists will reflect on how their social science backgrounds have enabled them to think critically and creatively about social inequities and work in local and international contexts to improve outcomes for people with disability, enhance communication access and work towards social justice.

How might your social sciences degree help you make change, solve problems and shape the world in which we live? Come and hear from our panellists about how and why the social sciences inspire and enable what they do!

This is a collaborative event hosted by Scope, Brotherhood of St Laurence and the School of Social and Political Sciences and Arts Teaching Innovation at the University of Melbourne for National Social Sciences Week 2022. It will be live captioned.

This online event will be live streamed in the Forum Theatre (Art West, University of Melbourne) with a local host. There will be door prizes and a networking lunch with staff, students and presenters to follow from 1-1.30pm.
