Social Sciences: Sociology, Social Policy & CriminologyPart of Social Sciences

Southampton sociologists, criminologists and academics in social policy explore a wide range of issues in their work.

Our research was ranked in the Top 5 in the country* in the REF 2014. We host programmes in sociology, social policy and criminology and have a range of programmes available for 2015. Our academics from these disciplines explore topical areas such as crime, education, work and social inequality. This research informs their teaching, so you will learn directly from specialists about these fascinating subjects.
