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.
Please visit our website for information on available modules.
Your achievements are assessed throughout the programme. Modules use a variety of methods including essays, case studies, portfolios, oral presentations, e-log books, completion of directed tasks and class tests. There are no formal written examinations as part of the current assessment methods for any Sociology module on this degree, though one of the optional Language modules is part-assessed by written examinations, should you choose to learn a language as an integrated element of the programme.
