Course summary

Introduction

Why study sociology?

In a rapidly changing social landscape, studying society and people's relationship with it is increasingly important; By exploring the nature, causes and effects of people's beliefs and behaviour, we can better understand social order and social change.

Sociologists are particularly good at evaluating, reasoning and communicating. They assess and map the context of social issues and problems skills that employers will value whatever career you choose.

Why UWE Bristol?

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, and with the support of our staff who are leaders in their field, 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. Student projects have focused on the refugee/economic migrant crisis, representations of gender or religion in the media, homelessness, the gender pay gap, the policing of public order and demonstrations, the impact of new technology on cultural industries, and how social class affects attitudes to education. These illustrate just a small number of the types of projects students undertake.
