Sociology and Social Anthropology

Sociology examines how individual choices are affected by wider social forces and how they can be understood by placing them in their social context. At Edinburgh, we study the relationship between individuals and groups, issues of belonging and identity, the social causes of cooperation and conflict, and the way societies and social institutions are formed and change over time. Our programme also equips you to compare different national contexts and understand contemporary social issues from a global perspective.
