Studying sociology provides an insight into various aspects of the social world and how these areas influence the social challenges faced by individuals. You will explore topics such as ethnicity, class, migration, and feminism, and consider the historical explanations and developments for these areas in the contemporary world. You will investigate how these topics promote inclusion in society or create social divisions based on different opinions and experiences. This will encourage you to have an analytical approach to different theories and explanations and develop fair arguments based on data and your individual critical viewpoint. You will develop your imaginative thinking and awareness around social inequalities and a range of important sociological issues.
