    Sociology and social policy are popular disciplines for undergraduates. These are fields of study of increasing social relevance to contemporary society, in terms of changing demographics and issues relating to globalisation and migration. Sociology seeks to address the need for a clear understanding of society and social processes to address the problems of late modernity.

    Students who undertake this course will benefit from an opportunity to develop specialist knowledge of diversity, health and community from sociological and social policy perspectives; as well as being equipped to analyse, and work within complex late modern societies.


    The entry requirements for this course are: 104 - 120 tariff points from 3 A-Levels or equivalent qualifications. BTEC Extended Diploma of DMM. Offers will be subject and grade specific, particularly in the science subjects.

    If English is not your first language, you will need to provide evidence that you can understand English to a satisfactory level. English language requirements for this course are normally:

    IELTS (Academic) 6.0 with minimum 5.5 in each component, or equivalent.


    Studying for this degree will provide graduates with a robust grounding in the social sciences in a key area of recognised importance in the contemporary world and in terms of global citizenship. In addition, upon graduation this will provide individuals with the opportunity to seek employment in a wide range of interesting professional careers, including local and national government departments. The focus on community and disability issues in turn offers a unique perspective that will aid graduate employability.
