  • Examine social theory, class, gender, culture, the media, globalisation, and urban sociology
  • Learn about changes and tensions in society and come to recognise how and why they develop
  • Complete a range of innovative and creative assessments and research-based assignments
  • Pick from a variety of modules to shape your course to your career interests

Our careers advisors will be on hand to offer guidance on your future career and to help you recognise and sharpen your employability skills. This course will develop your transferable skills in team working, time management, and written and oral communications.

Your course is delivered through a number of modules, which will help you to plan your time and establish a study routine. Outside of your lectures, workshops and tutorials, a range of support is available to assist with your independent study. Our subject-specific librarians will be on hand to direct you to the specialist learning and study-skill resources. You’ll also be assigned an academic advisor to give you tailored feedback and support.
