Course summary

**Why Warwick?**The University of Warwick is a world-leading university, born out of boldness, imagination and collaboration. We’ve built a strong reputation for upholding the highest academic and research standards.Today, more than 27,000 students thrive in a supportive, welcoming space where everything you need to study, live and have fun is close to hand. Explore what Warwick has to offer, and you’ll develop a skillset that sets you apart, and sets you up to succeed. What that success looks like is up to you.**The course**With the study of social life at its heart, the scope of sociology is almost limitless. This course will introduce you to its broad subject matter, which encompasses family life, education, crime, work, war, religion, capitalism, power, love, the self, human-animal relations, art and the media, to name just a few. Sociology also has an abiding concern with the main markers of social difference in modern society – class, gender, race/ethnicity, age, sexuality and (dis)ability. You’ll explore how these often intersect in shaping the life chances and experiences of individuals. In addition to lectures, interactive seminars will add depth to your learning. You'll also benefit from unique academic opportunities outside of the core curriculum, including opportunities to engage in independent Summer research funded and supported by our Undergraduate Research Support Scheme (URSS) and also an annual study trip to a destination in Europe (such as Amsterdam).As a single honours Sociology student you'll have the option to switch to a specialism in your final year (subject to passing 75 credits of modules in the relevant specialist area). You can select your specialism by following a pathway of optional modules and completing a dissertation in the relevant area. Our specialisms include Gender Studies; Race and Global Politics; Social and Political Thought; Research Methods; Social Inequalities and Public Policy or Technologies and Markets. Selections of specialisms are confirmed at the beginning of your final year, so you can try a number of topics before choosing this route.
