Sociology

Sociology is a well-established discipline, as relevant to the study of 21st-century societies as it is to the sweeping changes of the Industrial Revolution. Sociologists are concerned with society’s structures, forms of action and cultural arrangements and are uniquely placed to understand the changes of social life. This course provides the academic and professional support needed for you to develop your own sociological imagination. The structure of year one provides a solid grounding in sociology, followed by a greater choice of units linked to staff research interests in subsequent years. Recently, these units have covered subjects such as culture, ethnicity, class, migration, modern slavery, popular music, racism and science. There is a strong emphasis on research skills throughout, with compulsory units in the first two years. In your final year, you will conduct a piece of supervised sociological research on a topic of your choice that draws on these research skills. You will also have the opportunity to spend half a year studying abroad at a partner university.
