Course summary

Why study Sociology?

How does society shape us? How do relationships between people and institutions affect the way we act? What does it mean to be a citizen of a country? If you’re interested in these fundamental questions, then this could be the course for you. We aim to challenge your assumptions and perhaps change a few, all the while helping you develop a range of skills that will help you in your career too.

On the course we’ll provide you with the opportunity to explore a range of techniques for investigating the social world in which we live. You’ll look at important sociological questions, such as how societies operate, exploring areas of power, identity politics, health and well-being, and how identities are constructed. As part of this we will look at different social groups and divisions around gender, ethnicity, culture, disability, sexuality and age.

How will you learn?

  • You’ll have the opportunity to go on a compulsory work experience in your second year, previous students have worked in schools, colleges, charities, law firms, community organisations and commercial businesses. It’s about gaining work-ready skills, and useful contacts to help you get into the world of employment.
  • In your second year you may have the opportunity to study abroad for a term.
  • In your second and third years you’ll be able to tailor your studies and choose from a range of modules. You could begin to specialise in an area that really interests you.
  • You'll also be eligible for student membership of the British Sociological Association (BSA), which could help you stand out from other candidates when it comes to finding employment.
