Social Policy and Sociology - University of Bristol

This joint honours degree explores different ways of developing an understanding of crucial issues within public and social life. It combines the focus of social policy on wellbeing with sociology’s insight into how contemporary societies operate. Both the School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies and the School for Policy Studies encourage strong synergy between research and teaching, resulting in a vibrant learning environment as staff respond in their teaching to new research. Sociology explores the structures of societies and how they constitute social patterns. This is crucial to our understanding of how different groups in society experience wellbeing, as well as the dynamics needed to change patterns of inequality. In your social policy studies, the first year introduces key skills and concepts within social policy so that you can familiarise yourself with theoretical, comparative and historical analyses. Years two and three allow you to explore your interests in greater depth through a range of optional units. You will also have the opportunity to spend half a year studying abroad at a partner university.
