Sociology is taught by an enthusiastic team who will get to know you and provide appropriate support. Students often comment on how much they enjoy studying sociology and we work hard to foster a friendly atmosphere where everyone can feel welcomed and valued. We use a range of teaching and learning strategies: lectures, classes, workshops, group work and individual study. The department has a range of resources available to sociology students. We make a large part of our lecture notes and supporting material available on-line and we also have a film club that provides an opportunity to explore issues raised in your learning in a more informal setting. This course allows you to gain the full range of skills relevant to a career in the field of Sociology, but also develops a range of transferable skills applicable to many other careers. These include team-working and interpersonal skills, communication presentation and IT skills, negotiation, problem-solving and data handling.
