Social Anthropology and Sociology - University of Manchester

- Are you looking for a flexible social science degree that keeps your options open? - Would you like to arm yourself with the necessary skills to thrive in the world of work? - Are you interested in engaging 'real world' research? - Would you like the chance to study abroad for a semester? - Take the right course units and you can apply for a paid summer internship through Manchester's Q-Step programme. Social Anthropology and Sociology is a pathway within the BA (Social Sciences) degree or BASS for short. BASS at Manchester is designed to give you maximum flexibility and choice. If you feel that you are interested in the social sciences but fancy the chance to try out a range of different topics, this could be the degree for you. When you apply, you select one of the ten joint pathways of the BA (Social Sciences), each of which has its own unique course code. Although you'll start off on your chosen two-subject pathway, by Year 2 you can take a minimum of three subjects and a maximum of five and you can then specialise in any one or two subjects in your final year. In every subject you are given a wide range of course units to choose from, and a high degree of flexibility in the way in which you combine them as your academic interests develop. **The six main subject areas are:** - Social Anthropology : The study of societies and cultures across the globe in comparative perspective. - Sociology : The study of society and examines such issues as social inequalities and forms of everyday life. - Criminology : The study of the causes and consequences of crime. - Philosophy : The study of fundamental questions such as the nature of knowledge, truth and values. Philosophy also encourages greater consideration of our reasoning, judgement and ethics. - Politics : The study of human organization, government and power. Politics examines and evaluates political systems and institutions. - Quantitative Methods : The study of data and analysis to understand the social world. **Special Features** - BA (Hons) Social Sciences contains a broad-based first year which is particularly valuable if you have not taken any social science subjects before entering university. - There are a vast range of optional course units available to you in the second and third years. Despite the variety of these courses, all are taught by the experts in their fields - a benefit of a faculty degree. - Our Sociology department was ranked top in the country for research. 'Excellence' in research feeds into teaching so that students are taught by experts with a real passion for their subject. - Founded in 1949 the Social Anthropology discipline area has grown to become one of the largest Social Anthropology departments in Britain with an unrivalled reputation for ethnographic film making, photography and sound.
