Sociology (Foundation Entry)

How does society work? What makes one society different from another? Develop the ability to critically reflect on, discuss and write about topical social issues from a local, national and international perspective on this fascinating, relevant degree. You’ll develop an understanding of key sociological theorists and important sociological issues - and the emphasis on studying these in an international context will be particular useful if you plan to study or work overseas. You’ll graduate with a real understanding of world issues - vital for graduates, wherever you choose to work. Many of our sociology graduates go onto postgraduate study including teacher training, Masters level study and doctorate research. The degree develops graduate employability skills enabling our students to go into areas such as education, criminal justice, welfare services, government, counselling, charities and the voluntary sector, community development work, probation officers, social researchers, social work and journalism. Indeed the British Sociological Association (BSA) declares that 'a very wide range of employers see a sociology degree as highly relevant'.
