Sociology - Goldsmiths, University of London

Sociology is a craft and a vocation, and engaging with it can be life-changing. Once you’ve acquired a sociological imagination, the world is never quite the same. **Why study BA Sociology at Goldsmiths?** - Sociology offers illuminating insights into our lives. This degree examines how societies are organised, how people are united and divided in different cultural and social arrangements, and how people view their societies and their identities. - You'll use innovative methods to study everyday life and contemporary phenomena. These methods could include interviews, visual sociology (photography and film), ethnography (researching and recording an environment from the point of view of the group you’re studying), big data surveys, or small focus groups. - Because you’ll be generating data of your own, conducting primary research, and analysing lots of evidence, you’ll be developing some great skills and experiencing what it means to be a sociologist from day one. - Our staff teach their own specialisms – they're pioneers in their fields and write the books that are on reading lists across the country. - Recent employers of Goldsmiths sociology graduates include the BBC, Big Issue North, Holocaust Educational Trust, Oxfam, Tate and the civil service. They’re working as researchers, human rights campaigners, teachers, diversity officers and producers.
