There is scope to specialise in areas such as research methods, gender studies, race and global politics, technologies and markets, social and political thought, and social inequalities and public policy. You will be learning from committed teaching staff who are at the forefront of their specialist research areas. Our research-led curriculum emphasises your role in creating your own knowledge as part of a wider academic community. You will become familiar with key social science theories and methods (quantitative and qualitative) and will gain an understanding of their real-world application, alongside skills in independent research, oral and written communication, critical analysis and project management. Core modules are supplemented by a wide variety of optional modules in areas such as sociology of gender, race, health, education, science, animals, policy, media, and consumer culture. There are also opportunities to participate in our annual study trip, and to take a year abroad.
