Course summary

The BSc Sociology blends local and global sociological perspectives to examine contemporary social issues and transformations, ranging from environmental risks and climate change, to the intensification of inequalities, the rise of new nationalisms, the impacts of new technologies, and imaginings of the future. Students will graduate with the skills and mindset appropriate to tackling the challenges of 21st century society.

Your learning

Our innovative teaching and assessment methods include the use of photo diaries, narrative walks, multimedia, and other approaches that will enable you to interact with the built and social environment.

Assessment

Assessment is through a mix of essays, photo-diaries, written examinations, practical exercises, a work-based report and a dissertation in the final year of study. The weight given to each assessment method varies across modules to ensure a manageable workload throughout the programme.

Careers

This degree will give you the edge in a dramatically changing world of work. The skills and mindset you develop will not only continue to be needed in an increasingly digital world, but will help you equip your employers to survive these and other social transformations.

A work-based project will help you to work collaboratively to apply theoretical approaches to real-world applications. Sociologists are employed in government and public administration, non-governmental organisations, charities and international development, teaching and research, business, innovation and design sectors, media, journalism and publishing, heath and welfare services, human resources and marketing and much more.
