Course summary

Sociology enables us to understand society and our roles within it. It is concerned with the ways in which social relations between people emerge, are sustained and change. The BSc (Hons) in Sociology course is for those wishing to study and develop methodological expertise in order to analyze social data and engage with social policy debates. BSc (Hons) in Sociology examines the organisation of contemporary societies and explores the opportunities and structural inequalities that define our everyday lives. You will have the opportunity to study topics such as the following: Social class and social mobility, 'Race' and ethnicity, Gender, Culture, Identity, Inequality and intersectionality, Migration, Media, Crime and criminology. You will have the opportunity to appreciate the complex interplay between local and global forces, with particular reference to life in the 21st century metropolis, which - in our case - is London. This course will develop your critical thinking and skills in the analysis, interpretation and production of social data. Our department of Sociology hosts a Q-Step centre which is one of few universities in the UK to participate in this scheme. Q-step provides support in quantitative analysis and offers a supporting work placement to participating students. You can opt in from your second year. The degrees affiliation with City's Q-Step Centre ensures that graduates possess strong data literacy and quantitative methods skills, which are highly sought after in sectors as diverse as government, education, market research, not-for-profit sector, the financial sector and news media.
