Course summary

BA(Hons) Sociology focuses on how we can make a difference to ‘self and society’ using sociological theories and approaches. Through a broad range of modules, you’ll engage with real issues, and develop fresh insights and solutions to help improve people's lives. Learn to evaluate evidence, approach problems from multiple perspectives, and build your expertise in research, analysis and communication. Carry out your own research projects to develop, test and apply new solutions to contemporary problems.Past student projects have focused on the refugee/economic migrant crisis, representations of gender or religion in the media, homelessness, the policing of public order and demonstrations and how social class affects attitudes to education. Gain industry insights from guest speakers, and take part in work-based learning through our links with organisations such as the Bristol Youth Offending Team, Bristol Youth Education Service and the police.Activities such as volunteering and placements will build valuable vocational experience, and deepen your skills and knowledge further. You can also choose to spend a year studying at the Virginia Commonwealth University, USA, to add international experience to your degree.The broad skills and experience you’ll gain will make you attractive to a range of employers. You could pursue a career in research, education, social work, charity work, counselling, politics, journalism or writing, or work in the justice, legal or media sectors.
