Course summary

**Why study this course?**Our Sociology (including foundation year) BSc is a four-year degree designed to lead to an undergraduate qualification in sociology if you don’t hold the necessary requirements or qualifications to enter the undergraduate degree. On graduation, you’ll receive the same title and award as students who started via the three-year route.During your foundation year you will explore a broad range of current themes and social issues from an interdisciplinary perspective. You’ll develop academic study and professional skills for your future career and boost your confidence, especially if you have been out of education for some time. You will also take one module that is more closely related to sociology, so you’ll be able to prepare for in-depth undergraduate study of the subject in the following years. **More about this course**In your foundation year, you’ll gain skills that are necessary for academic study by exploring themes in social sciences. This year will cover a broad range of contemporary themes and social issues by examining issues from a range of disciplines in social sciences.During the foundation year you will develop your academic skills.
