The ability to analyse these texts and their subtle meanings is a skill that could lead to a range of interesting careers.At Farnborough, you will read a range of stimulating and diverse texts.

Studying these fascinating topics with us will encourage you to think objectively about why people behave in certain ways. You will be considering questions such as: What role does crime play in shaping society? How can society address inequality? Why doesn’t society do more to improve global issues?During your degree, you will uncover the theories that seek to explain why some groups of people can flourish together, while others try to tear each other apart. You will delve into contemporary theories and discover how different cultures fit into our society.As a sociology student, your critical-thinking skills will be honed as you begin to broaden your understanding of society and its relationship with our everyday lives.
