Politics and Sociology University of Bristol

Undergraduate

This course takes advantage of the expertise of our staff in the School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies. You will study a range of theoretical and practical problems that affect the social world.

Politics enables you to study the politics of individual countries and governments, and the relationships between countries, communities and individuals. Becoming familiar with different views and methods of analysis you will learn to apply and evaluate them.

Sociology provides expertise in the study of the social world including actions, structures, beliefs, power and representation. By focusing on theoretical ideas and research skills you will be uniquely placed to understand the fast moving changes of social life.

In year three you can choose to do a research dissertation in either discipline.

Our school encourages strong synergy between new research and teaching resulting in a vibrant learning environment. This course combination offers an enriching experience with exciting intellectual challenges.
