Course summary

Sociology studies the ways that people organise their lives together, the constraints within which they do so, the patterns of their social behaviour, and the causes and consequences of social inequalities. One of the distinctive features of our Sociology programme, commended by external examiners and by our graduates, is the combination of sociological, criminological and anthropological perspectives which we provide. Business & Management: the study of business and management offers you a structured insight into both the theoretical and practical dimensions of organisations and management.
