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. Social & Public Policy focuses on finding ways to address global and societal challenges such as poverty and inequality, housing, health, technology, and sustainability. The programme applies ideas from political science, sociology and economics to understand how governments shape their responses to address people’s needs, welfare and wellbeing. The Social & Public Policy Teaching Team was awarded the prestigious Social Policy Association/Policy Press Outstanding Teaching Award 2020, in recognition of UofG’s excellence and innovation in teaching in social policy in the UK (SPA 2020). Social Policy at Glasgow was ranked joint top in the UK for student satisfaction in the NSS 2019. You’ll have the valuable opportunity of a work placement with a voluntary or public sector organisation.
