Sociology with Human Rights BA (Hons) University of Essex



Course info


Essex is a world leader in social science, with Sociology ranked among the top 50 departments on the planet according to the QS World University Rankings (2017). You study both areas of sociology and human rights. Sociology is the study of the different kinds of social tensions, interactions and networks that make up everyday life. We ask why individuals, groups, cultures and peoples are the way they are and how they might be different. We provide you with the practical means to investigate such questions through a range of research design techniques. Our study of human rights draws on law, politics and social science and focuses on the definition, development, defence and abuse of rights around the world. We teach in interesting and innovative ways with an exciting choice of modules. Your first year includes an introduction to human rights and foundational courses in sociology. The second year includes the modules Issues and Methods in Human Rights and Continuity and Controversy in Sociology which develop research techniques and continues on from your first year module. In your final year you take Human Rights Colloquium and Current Disputes in Sociology. Through our Q-Step Affiliate Status, we offer you the opportunity to develop your quantitative skills by taking a specialised degree pathway or receiving a student bursary to go on a quantitative work placement. Q-Step is funded by the Nuffield Foundation.
