Sociology

**Why choose this course?** This Sociology course enables you to tackle global social problems like inequalities, migration, war, and climate change, alongside international issues. It also includes a third year visit to Germany for the Migration and Social Transformation module. You will gain experience relevant to growing sectors such as think-tanks, NGOs, governmental and international organisations, and local and urban agencies. You'll be taught in our vibrant department which has won awards for innovative teaching*, particularly on Taking Race Live, a celebration of race, ethnicity and culture. Sociology, music and drama students collaborate on this annual event which is held in a local venue and open to the public. You will also take part in the annual School of Law, Social and Behavioural Sciences themed week where regular teaching is replaced by a series of workshops, presentations, discussions and reading groups on a contemporary social issue. Previous themes have included race, war and gender, and in 2016, the keynote speaker was Shami Chakrabati, Shadow Attorney General for England and Wales. Our Sociology degree is in the top 10 per cent globally in the prestigious QS World University Rankings 2017. Kingston University is the only modern London-based university featured in the sociology rankings. **National Student Survey 2017** The latest National Student Survey (NSS) results for 2016/17 showed that overall 100% of Sociology BSc(Hons) students at Kingston University are satisfied with the quality of the course. This builds on previous year's results and reflects our commitment to engaging with students and responding to their needs.
