Sociology and Politics - Goldsmiths, University of London

This degree gives you a thorough grounding in sociology and politics, in methods of social and political research, and in interdisciplinary approaches to political analysis. **Why study BA Sociology & Politics at Goldsmiths?** - The degree brings together the concerns, theories and methodologies of politics and sociology, so you’ll develop a rich, analytical and informed engagement with a range of contemporary problems while also gaining a number of transferable skills. - At Goldsmiths, you won't just learn about politics in terms of what happens in the Houses of Parliament and conventional arenas of power, but also what happens on the streets, in art galleries, and in the non-Western world. - Our academics are responsible for producing cutting-edge research in sociology and politics, so you’ll be learning from the experts. - Our departments are committed to decolonising the curriculum and we offer particular expertise on questions of culture, as well as on radical approaches to race, gender, sexuality, and the organisation of political life. - You’ll be able to pursue your own interests and develop your own lines of research, culminating in the final year dissertation on a topic of your choice. Previous dissertations included a study of the impact of stigma on South Asian Muslim experiences of mental health, a feminist critical analysis of the Green Party’s policies and manifesto, and an ethnography of labour practices and workers’ organisation in a Chinese street market. - We make use of our London location to consider the social and cultural themes and issues in the local area. Several modules make use of walking tours and neighbourhood observations to illuminate your studies. - You’ll join an active community at one of the top political universities in the UK (Which? University 2017). You’ll be able to get involved in campaigns, debates, activities and societies and meet other people as passionate about the subject as you. - We have a lively events programme that attracts renowned speakers, meaning that you'll have the opportunity to hear the latest political and sociological arguments, theories and ideas which bring a contemporary perspective to your degree.
