Comments about BSc Sociology - At the institution - Kingston Upon Thames - Greater London

  • Objectives
    Sociology is an academic discipline which explores how individual lives are shaped by the social and cultural circumstances in which they occur. It is the study of behaviour at all levels – from face-to-face interaction, to local groups, institutions and organisations, to global networks and social structures. Sociology is an ideal subject if you are interested in how the human world works and questions such as: Why do we organise our lives as we do? How do we influence one another? What shapes our values and aspirations? How does power operate? What keeps society together? Why do social divisions and conflict occur? How does society change? At Kingston University we will encourage you to take on these questions and more, to explore them in the light of solid research and careful analysis, and to develop an ‘sociological imagination’ which will inspire you well beyond the lecture room. You can also choose to study Sociology as a joint honours degree alongside another subject. See the 'course combinations' section for more information.
