Sociology is the study of societies, cultures, and groups. We live in complex societies with laws and informal rules that govern how we interact. Sociology helps you to understand more about yourself, others and the way society is organised.

You’ll have a good understanding of social differences, inequalities and social divisions. You’ll be able to apply your knowledge and skills to specific problems and issues to help you to be good decision-maker.

You’ll be introduced to Sociology as well as to the techniques and philosophies of the social sciences. You will focus on identities – starting out thinking about your own identity then building your knowledge and understanding so that you are more familiar with social divisions, social structures and the influence of culture. You’ll also learn how to visualise the most important components of society.
The second year builds on the first and enables you to begin to learn about the history and important ideas in Sociology. You can also specialise in more specific areas of Sociology such as education and crime. You’ll undertake practical training in research skills. This will enable you to complete your final year project as well as preparing you for the kind of employment that you’ll typically undertake as a sociology graduate.
You’ll concentrate on an aspect of sociology that most interests you in a dissertation, undertaken with the support of a member of staff as a supervisor. You can also focus on more detailed subjects such as globalisation, environment, ethnicity and racism, and gender.
