  • Objectives
    What is your relationship to the society you live in? How have you been affected by the culture you have grown up in? How do your class, gender and ethnicity affect your experience and life chances? What are the implications of new technologies, global communications, politics and commerce, mass media and popular culture for the way we live? Sociology offers you the opportunity to look in depth at issues such as these and to learn the skills and tools of analysis vital to working in advanced industrial societies.

  • Course description

    We have a commitment to review our programme constantly in order to keep it current and vital. We see this as one of the strengths of the education that we offer. The first year programme is under review at the moment. Therefore, what is outlined below gives an indication of the content that will be covered but the structure of the programme may change.

    In the first year you will take four modules; a minimum of two of these will be in Sociology. First year Sociology modules are: Classical Sociology and Modern Society (compulsory); The Individual and Society; Comparative Sociology: The Sociology of Non-Modern Societies. These will be combined with one or two other modules from a range of other disciplinary areas.

    Years 2 and 3
    Each year you take one core module which combines a study of how Sociology has theorised the development of modern forms of society, together with current debates about how they are changing.

    The remaining three modules per year are chosen from a wide range of option courses dealing with specific issues, eg crime, sexuality, education, health, urbanisation, cultural change, gender and ethnicity, psychoanalysis, feminism or Marxism. You can also learn more about how sociologists go about investigating issues and learn a range of skills such as interviewing, questionnaire design and participant observation skills. You also put some of your new knowledge and research skills into practice by completing a year three project on a subject area of your choice.
