Sociology

Understand how society is shaped. Investigate the issues that fascinate you most. Graduate with advanced research and communication skills. Sociology is the scientific study of human social relationships and institutions. It is a diverse area of study, and includes the family, sexuality, gender, the state, education, globalisation, health, welfare and poverty. Its focus is to consider how social structures interact with individual choice, the divisions which can undermine social stability and the shared beliefs which create the basis for common culture. This course looks at the most important issues facing our society today including poverty, culture, immigration, families, global connections, social exclusion, race, disability, gender, sexuality, politics and policy, and social class divisions. You will cover topical and dynamic content, reflecting current social issues. The emphasis is on careful gathering and analysis of evidence to broaden our understanding of key social processes. You will graduate capable of working in a range of employment settings due to the transferable skills, broad knowledge base and critical awareness that studying Sociology provides.
