Course summary

Sociology is the study of modern human societies and seeks to explain how social relationships and cultural understanding shape the life chances, experiences, attitudes and actions of individuals and groups. At Kent, you develop quantitative research skills, which many employers look for, alongside sociological expertise, which leads to excellent career prospects. Adding a quantitative research minor to your programme opens your mind to new ways of thinking. Starting with no assumed statistical knowledge, you graduate with an advanced package of practical quantitative skills alongside subject-specific knowledge in sociological theory and its application to real world issues.This programme provides you with an understanding of core traditions and contemporary developments in sociological thinking and research. In your first year, you take introductory sociology, and quantitative skills modules and can choose modules on subjects including criminology and modern culture. In your second and final years, you extend your quantitative skills and take modules in contemporary sociological theory and social research methods. We offer an impressive range of optional modules, which gives you the flexibility to study the topics that really interest you. Our modules span many countries and include explorations of childhood, environmentalism, gender, political change, race, violence and work, among others. In your final year, you choose either a dissertation with a quantitative research focus or (providing you achieve the required academic standard by the end of Stage 2) a placement module where you can put your skills into practice. Workplace experience is highly valued by employers, and the placements offered through Kent see students completing meaningful, applied quantitative analysis for business and organisations across a range of sectors, giving you the opportunity to add concrete workplace achievements to your CV.Our students have the opportunity to spend a year or a term abroad at one of our partner institutions in North America, Asia and Europe. You don’t have to make a decision before you enrol at Kent but certain conditions have to be met during your studies before you can change to the year abroad. The School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research is one of the best in the country for teaching and research. Our academics are internationally recognised for their expertise and challenge you to develop your own opinions and ideas, encouraging you to become an independent thinker. We offer high levels of support and our staff are friendly and accessible.Sociology is also available as single honours degree (UCAS code L300 at institution K24).
