Sociology

The degree encourages examination of the institutions within which people organise and manage their lives, through investigation of a range of themes. Social institutions such as the family, education and religion are scrutinised for how they shape and construct identities. An appreciation of the historical origins of Sociology promotes exploration of the emergence of the globalised contemporary world and the interconnections of people on an international scale. Sociology is a discipline that addresses the social transformations of our global era such as: • the expansion of the internet and the digital economy and society, • Debates around inequality, life-chances and poverty in terms of social class, gender and sexuality, race and ethnicity and age and generation, • Conflict, war, migration and refugee flows, • Climate change and environmental risks.
