Your knowledge will be developed in the dynamic, international environment of our Business School where there are 45 nationalities, small class sizes and where teaching is delivered by leading figures in the fields of business practice and theory, corporate finance and organisational change. Your learning will be supported by dedicated careers advisers.In Sociology, you will study topics as wide-ranging as work-life balance, sociology of the family, religion and society. You will also become skilled in the social research methods used to better understand different aspects of society - for example, observation, interviews, large-scale surveys, or analysing the content of documents and videos. You will be taught by academic staff with international reputations for conducting high-quality research in religion and secularisation, conflict and peace, social movements and global political sociology.
