Sociology at Westminster is a hub of interaction and exchange, hosting a dialogue between students from all over the world, between different classes, cultures and beliefs. Our teaching begins at this fascinating social intersection, using our students’ rich experience as the starting point of sociological investigation, and using London’s vibrant cultures and subcultures, institutions, museums and galleries as our greatest learning resource.

Our highly experienced, research-active staffs are experts in their fields, and will provide you with essential theoretical, analytical, and practical tools for understanding the contemporary world. A degree in Sociology prepares you for most professional careers by developing critical self- and social awareness. You will develop invaluable transferable skills in abstract and conceptual thinking, and receive comprehensive training in social research methods – from the analysis of online texts to in-depth interviews and statistical research.
