Do you consider yourself to have an inquisitive mind? This sociology course encourages you to look at the world in different ways. How do societies develop and why are they so often characterised by inequality? Can we ever achieve an equal society? In what ways do social structures limit or determine individual action? This course seeks to understand and answer these complex issues as they relate to modern British society and beyond. This degree aims to explore how societies develop and change and the role of individuals in relation to social groups, institutions and global forces. You’ll have opportunities to analyse the pressing issues of modern day society, not just in Britain, but throughout the world, including: globalisation, development, modernity, postmodernity, inequality and social exclusion, work-life balance, sex, sexuality, families, intimacy and gender relations.
