Sociology and Economics - University of Kent

Sociology provides ways of making sense of a world undergoing unprecedented social change and uncertainty. Combining an understanding of the role that economics and economic policy have in bringing about and dealing with such change, with knowledge of how the structures that underpin society work is fascinating and opens up many rewarding career options. You develop an understanding of core traditions and contemporary developments in sociological thinking and research. The programme also features a range of specialist areas such as race and ethnic identity, sociological approaches to violence, terrorism and society, new media technologies, the sociology of health, sex and gender and the sociology of science and technology. Within the Economics element of your degree, you examine some of the profound issues in our life and times, including: economic growth and sustainable development, emerging market economies, financial and monetary crises, international trade and aid to poor countries. At Kent, you learn about these issues from economists who are highly regarded within the profession for emphasising the practical application of economics in all of these arenas.
