How can we understand and explain diverse social and political issues such as Brexit, drone warfare, veganism, the #metoo movement and celebrity culture? Why does social inequality continue to exist? How can we find out more about, and improve, people's lives and experiences?
On this BSc (Hons) Sociology degree, you'll explore these pressing contemporary social issues and delve into the latest sociological research.
As well as applying classic sociological theories to contemporary situations, you'll have the opportunity to study specialist areas of sociology that interest you most, such as nationalism, happiness and emotions, the body, social class, and gender, sexuality, and race. You can also follow a media studies pathway, studying topics such as digital cultures and media fandom.
You'll develop the skills and knowledge to engage critically with the world around you, enhancing your understanding of it so you can consider how to fight to change it.
You'll be taught by sociologists who are currently doing research that tackles social inequalities, explores people's lives and investigates pressing contemporary issues. The content of many modules is based on this research, giving you an experience and perspective you won't get anywhere else. You'll also develop the skills to carry out your own research into topics you care about.
