Course summary

As humans we are social animals, and sociology focuses on how we make sense of, understand and evaluate the social structures, organisations, processes, cultures and groups that we live our lives within. It is a discipline that recognises that our wellbeing is tied to the welfare of others and society as a whole. This degree encourages you to develop the skills to become a critical independent thinker, exploring and analysing social issues and problems, with field trips to UK and European institutions to broaden your vision. Our innovative and creative teaching and learning approaches enable you to develop the transferable research skills and knowledge you need to expand your sociological imagination, as well as obtain skills for your chosen career path.
