Course summary

This is a combined honours course, where you study Politics alongside Sociology. The study of politics is the study of power. It starts by examining the roots and nature of political activity set in the context of wider social activity. It also explores governments and types of governance, as well as the nature of power and rule under democratic and non-democratic regimes. After the first year, you will have the opportunity to participate in the design of your own course of study with guidance from your teachers, following your own areas of interests. Sociology studies human social life, groups and societies. A wide-ranging subject, it analyses social relationships and social institutions, and the ways in which they shape people’s lives. Sociologists focus on many topics, ranging from global social processes to changing identities and personal relationships. Studying sociology will increase your knowledge and understanding of the social world in the 21st century. Our flexible course allows you to pursue your own areas of interest within the subject.
