Course summary

At Keele University, we’re proud to be consistently ranked in the Top 3 UK universities for student satisfaction, which is testimony to the safe, supportive and welcoming campus we hope you’ll soon call home.This course will provide you with a grounding in the core concepts of Sociology. You will develop skills in social research and explore a range of important social issues. The course covers a wide range of topics including families, activism and protest, social media, globalisation, inequalities, anthropology and celebrity. The Sociology course involves a mix of compulsory and research-led modules to enable you to think independently, critically, and imaginatively about the issues that shape our everyday lives and our futures. Through a mix of lectures, seminars, and workshops you will study societies, social problems, and how they impact upon the lives of individuals. We will consider how our lives are shaped by relationships with other people, institutions, habits, and ways of thinking that make up the complex societies in which we live.You will be encouraged to develop sociological explanations for the wide-ranging changes taking place in the contemporary world and think about potential solutions to social problems. In the final year of your studies, you will receive individual supervision to carry out your own piece ofsocial research.Sociology is a theoretically informed discipline which teaches skills that are useful in a wide range of careers. A Sociology degree from Keele will encourage you to become an imaginative, creative, and pragmatic thinker who can think about problems critically with a view to working out practical solutions. Sociology is an evidence-based subject so you will also develop skills in problem-solving, using knowledge, information, and data to enable informed decision-making. This varied skill set is useful for a wide range of occupations and professions. Our graduates have entered work in fields including social care, the health sector, advertising and marketing, the charity sector, youth services, and local government. Some of our graduates also choose to pursue further academic study
