Top Graduate Diploma Programs in Social Sciences

Graduate diplomas differ from other degrees, such as a bachelor’s or master’s, due to their length in duration and subject matter. Earning a diploma requires fewer courses and does not take as long to earn. Students usually enroll in these courses after receiving a bachelor’s.

Social sciences help students to better understand the interactions and systems within human society. Topics covered may include how communities and populations form governments, make laws, develop economic systems, or how individuals make decisions.
