Course summary

Why is there inequality in wealthy societies? Does surveillance benefit society? If these questions fascinate you, our Sociology degree is a great fit. Learn how to think critically about contemporary society in the UK and beyond. Study at Warwick and enrich your understanding of concepts such as such as gender, race, class and the state. The BA Sociology degree will provide you with a strong base to understand how society and people have changed over time. With the study of social life at its heart, the scope of sociology is almost limitless. This course will introduce you to its broad subject matter, which encompasses family life, education, crime, work, war, religion, capitalism, power, love, the self, the media, to name just a few. You will also gain skills in quantitative and qualitative research methods that can be applied across a range of different subject areas. Sociology also has an abiding concern with the main markers of social difference in modern society – class, gender, race or ethnicity, age, sexuality and (dis)ability. You will explore how these often intersect in shaping the life chances and experiences of individuals. In addition to lectures, interactive seminars will add depth to your learning.
