Should we all have an equal say in how the society we live in operates? As a sociology student, you gain an understanding of how societies work, develop and transform. You examine the social institutions that govern us, discover what you think should change and search for a way to achieve it.In your first year, you study the fundamentals of sociological thinking. As your understanding develops, you examine the workings of the social institutions that govern people's lives, assessing their impact on individuals and society as a whole. You can also choose optional modules on criminology, modern culture or social policy. In your second and final years, you extend your knowledge of sociological theory and social research methods. The varied expertise in the School means we are able to offer optional modules that include explorations of childhood, environmentalism, gender, political change, crime, race, violence and work, among others.
