Study the fundamentals of sociological analysis with our BA Sociology course. Subjects include crime and deviance, religion and belief, migration, race and racism, new genetics and masculinities. We'll also give you training in research techniques, information retrieval, critical analysis and communication using a range of styles and formats. In your third year, you’ll explore current thinking on a range of important issues via specialist modules. You'll also undertake a research project on a topic of your own choosing, working closely with your dissertation supervisor. You'll develop your skills as a social researcher and demonstrate how you can use the theoretical frameworks and methodological tools of the discipline to investigate and report on a significant social or sociological issue.
