Course summary

The BSocSc Sociology degree is the study of social life and social change. It adopts the perspective that individual behaviour can only be understood by studying people's social context and their webs of connection.An investigative `myth-busting' discipline, we critically examine core assumptions about social life.Research and teaching are often motivated by the desire to improve or challenge the conditions of life and society, and sociology provides a critical perspective on how and why we might change our social worlds.Lecturers are engaged in research on a range of sociological topics, specialisms include: - social division and inequality; - social movements; - sustainability and environment; - social theory; - globalisation and social change; - cultural practices and consumption; - media and technology; - work and economy; - personal life (family, intimacies and sexualities); - survey methods and qualitative research; - cities and urban life; and - ageing and social gerontology.
