Course summary

Sociology and languages are inherently tied. No study of society can ignore language, and no study of language can be removed from its specific social context. You will be challenged to think about the nature of the social worlds in which we live and about how language and culture build and inform such worlds. You will study social life and social change, from the reproduction of inequalities in relation to social categories (such as race, class or gender), to the way that wider cultural contexts shape intimate relationships. You will develop advanced language skills and learn about the cultures and histories related to that language. In the third year of this four-year programme, you will undertake a period of residence abroad, studying or working in a country that speaks your language of study. Our aim is to help you develop analytical, investigative and linguistic skills, training you to become independent thinkers and researchers with the confidence to work in both English and another language.
