Sociology developed with the modern world and its key task is to analyse the changing nature of our social world. You will study important aspects of the real world that are complex and challenging such as inequality, violence, unfairness, or injustice. This is done through examining social change, globalization, migration, gender and sexuality, technology and social theory. Sociology graduates are well placed to seek employment in graduate management schemes, social services, education, criminal justice, welfare services, government, counselling, charities and the voluntary sector. Possible job roles could include community development worker, further education lecturer, housing officer, teacher, probation officer (if studied with Criminology), social researcher, social worker (after taking relevant postgraduate qualification) and welfare rights adviser. It is also possible to progress to postgraduate study in Town Planning.
