Sociology and Geography

**Why choose Huddersfield?** **We’ve ranked 6th in the UK (and top in Yorkshire) for Sociology in the Guardian University Guide 2020.** **Why study Sociology and Geography?** The study of sociology and geography together is a fascinating and distinctive synergy of two closely related disciplines. On the course we’ll give equal weight to both Sociology and Geography. On the Sociology side, you’ll study and analyse social relationships in a range of human experiences. From relationships between men and women to the formulation of identity, from race, ethnicity and gender through to the relationship between the powerful and powerless in society, you’ll cover some fascinating areas. The Geography side covers a range of subjects including contemporary social structures and inequalities within society, cultures and regions, plus the opportunity to examine the role of geopolitics in our contemporary world. Underpinning all of this is the theme of sustainability and planetary boundaries. **How will you learn?** - Fieldwork is an integral part of any geographer’s training, so we’ve embedded field-trips, including residential field courses into the course, so you’ll experience the opportunities that learning in the field presents. - Your tutors will engage you through thematic teaching. That means you’ll often study both Sociology and Geography together, looking at real-life examples and situations. - You’ll have the opportunity to go on a work placement in your second year; it could help you to put your skills into practice, and be invaluable to increasing your future employability prospects. - In your second year you may have the opportunity to study abroad for a term. - You’ll also become eligible for student membership of the Royal Geographical Society (RGS) and British Sociological Association (BSA). After completing your degree, you will have the opportunity to become a Fellow of the RGS.
