Course summary

Overview

On our Sociology degree you will study human social life, groups and societies. And increase your understanding of the social world of the 21st century.

Sociologists focus on many topics, ranging from global social processes to personal relationships. You will analyse social relationships and social institutions.

Our flexible course structure allows you to pursue your own areas of interest. It'll also provide you with a solid foundation in the discipline. And you'll gain a range of personal and professional skills to aid your future career development.

You can attend weekly seminars with guest speakers from other universities, and outside the academic sector. Speakers provide presentations on research themes of interest to Sociology students. The department also publishes an online newsletter which you can take part in.

All our teaching staff are active researchers with strong publication records. So your learning will be underpinned by the latest academic thinking.
