Course summary

**Why choose this course**At a time of growing inequality and increasing social and political unrest, it is important to understand how political institutions can address some of the more deeply rooted problems in society.Our BSc (Hons) Politics and Sociology course will let you discover and understand the interactions between social and political trends.We are ranked 6th for sociology in the UK by the Guardian University Guide 2021 and 2nd in the UK by The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021.**What you will study**Our BSc (Hons) Politics and Sociology course will provide you with extensive knowledge of the interactions between ideology, policy making, power and social structures. Looking at social policy from the perspective of political institutions, as well as the sociology of political structures, you’ll engage in a range of debates about the nature and impact of ‘social problems’. Moreover, the study of policy making in practice will provide you with an overview of opportunities and constraints affecting the way that policy is formed and implemented. You’ll split your time equally between politics and sociology, developing a sound understanding of both disciplinary traditions and cultures.
