Course summary

You have unique insight into the social world, explore your own social identity and consider how you have experienced the social world around you. Let this inform your studies and guide you to choose a specialism you are passionate about. From your second year you will be able to choose from a range of modules in both sociology and criminology so you can tailor your degree to your interests and future career ambitions.On specialist modules you will learn the qualitative and quantitative research methods used by sociologists and start applying them to your own research. We will introduce you to different theoretical perspectives and, together with your peers, you will discuss how these can be used to analyse topics such as sexuality, childhood, technology, the body and space. Our goal is to help you to develop your critical thinking skills, to back up your ideas with evidence and reason and to learn to design, plan and execute research that supports your interests. You will be supported throughout your degree by our team of academics who are all active in social research. This means the material you cover is the most relevant it can possibly be. Engage with them in seminars, workshops and 1 to 1 tutorials and let their expertise become your own.
