This course offers you the chance to analyse and understand the complexities of society and culture, in their historical and contemporary context. During your studies, you will learn about those concepts, theories and methods essential to what we call a 'sociological imagination', and enable your understanding of the inter-relationships between media and culture. Using traditional and enhanced electronic forms of learning, you will develop your skills for gathering evidence and applying theories to a range of cultural and sociological issues. In the process, you will be encouraged to share ideas and be intellectually enterprising. You will also have the opportunity to do volunteer work in the local community an experience that allows you to apply the skills you have acquired in the classroom to a range of social, cultural and media-based settings, deepens your appreciation of civic responsibility and enhances your opportunities for employment.
