Course summary

Sociology explores almost every aspect of social life by drawing on theoretical ideas that help us to understand societies and the forms they take, as well as studying real world social problems and the ethical dilemmas faced by our contemporary world.

The BSc Sociology programme explores specific examples of social action, social processes and institutions; compares different types of social life and societies; examines theories about the nature of social existence and change; studies different methods of social research; and allows you to undertake research of your own.

LSE Sociology is one of the premier sociology departments in the world, providing cutting-edge research-led teaching delivered by international experts in their field. Ours was the first sociology department in the United Kingdom and has played a unique role in defining and developing the discipline – nationally and internationally – since 1904.

The Department provides a learning environment in which students develop a firm grasp of the key dimensions of contemporary sociology, and are encouraged to think critically and independently. Many of the key issues in the discipline worldwide are contested and our teaching enables students to understand and evaluate these disputes and adopt a position in relation to them. Rigorous, critical and independent thought is the most transferable skill of all, and is the overarching objective of the learning experience we provide to our students.

Students on this programme also have the opportunity to receive a language specialism attached to their degree certificate and transcript.
