Overview At Worcester we encourage you to see the world from different angles, discuss new ideas, and think beyond the obvious. You’ll join a vibrant course community with lecturers who have a personal interest in you and your ideas. There are also plenty of real-life research opportunities, such as interviewing and observing, and when using sociological and political theory we make it relatable, showing how it can help with ‘real’ problems. Alongside studying sociology your course will have a political edge, allowing you to relate sociological research and issues to political philosophy, systems, and existential political challenges in Westminster, European and global politics. This combination of subjects will allow you to see the impact of politics, political language and legislation on everyday lives. Key features
- Critically engage with contemporary sociological and political challenges in our modules on the environment, digital society, rural sociology, visual imagery, Westminster, European, and global politics
- Varied assessment based on your own research interests and close tutor support, with no exams
- Lively debates not just sitting in lectures. When we do have lectures, we make them interactive, inclusive, and personally stimulating
- Specialist careers advice and work-based learning in local and regional organisations and with political parties in local constituencies and Parliament that will increase your employability
- Bespoke sociological and political resources and research materials in the Hive library, which serves not only the University but the local community
