About this course

A sociology degree will start your journey to a career that makes a difference. Our expert lecturers will help you explore how our experiences are shaped by class, gender and race - and how this is changing in the 21st century. You’ll graduate with the ability to analyse social structures, ready to positively impact issues at a local, national and global level.

  • new forms of community and identity
  • change and transformation in social lives
  • justice and injustice
  • complex social problems and public policy solutions
  • research methods in sociology (including quantitative and qualitative techniques)
