Course summary

Are you curious about how societies work, develop and transform? Do you want to know more about the role of economics in these processes? Our Sociology and Economics joint honours programme offers you a comprehensive and inspiring approach to these topics. The School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research offers a large choice of specialist modules on race, social change, criminal justice, disability and the arts. Our academics are internationally recognised for their expertise in sociological theory and their varied research gives you the opportunity to study diverse areas ranging from street culture to terrorism. Our academics in Kent’s School of Economics are exciting and innovative teachers who place a particular emphasis on making economics relevant to the real world. In your first year, you study the fundamentals of sociology and the principles of economics. You are then introduced to qualitative and quantitative sociological research and learn about the importance of statistics and metrics for economics. During all stages of your studies, you have the opportunity to choose specialist modules that suit your interests and include topics like financial crises, policy analysis, gender, the welfare state, crime, race, violence and work. In your final year of study, there is an option to take a dissertation module on a subject of your choice. This allows you to focus in detail on an area you are particularly passionate about.
