Sociology examines society and our experience of it as individuals, working professionals, families, communities and organisations. Ideally suited to those with an inquisitive mind, sociology encourages you to look at the world in different ways, questioning conventional wisdom and social structures.
You’ll have opportunities to analyse the pressing issues of modern day society, not just in Britain, but throughout the world, including: globalisation, development, modernity, postmodernity, race, inequality and social exclusion, media, work-life balance, sex, sexuality, families, intimacy and gender relations.
Designed with input from the British Sociological Association, our course benefits from strong links with national and local employers, many of whom provide work placements, including the Citizens Advice Bureau and Haven Charity and the Migrant Centre.
