Program Overview

The Sociology degree offers you the chance to analyse and understand the complexities of the global world in which we live.  During your studies, you will learn about the concepts, theories and methods essential to what we call a ‘sociological imagination’ – that special way of identifying, describing and understanding the nature of social life.

Over the course of your studies, you will develop critical understanding of a range of institutional conditions, cultural processes and social relations, within and across societies.  In the course of learning selected ‘social facts’ of society, you will be able to apply those concepts, theories and methods that are unique to this exciting discipline.

Students are encouraged to share knowledge and be enterprising with their ideas in self-directed and cooperative learning activities. You will acquire the skills necessary to gather evidence and apply theories to a range of social issues, and to communicate your ideas through interpersonal and digitally literate ways.  At each level of study you are given the opportunity to undertake accredited voluntary work in the local community or a work placement – an experience that broadens your sociological knowledge, deepens your appreciation of civic responsibility and enhances your opportunities for graduate employment. 

The foundation year of this course is designed to offer applicants who do not have the required qualifications, a programme which will equip them with a robust toolkit of academic, digital and personal skills required for successful study in higher education. It also provides an understanding of, and insight into, a range of disciplines that underpin their chosen programme of study. In the foundation year students will develop their ability to gain the most out of structured in-class study, and also to manage and evaluate their own independent learning. This wide range of transferable skills is of immense value in both undergraduate study and graduate employment. Upon successful completion of the foundation year, students will have the opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding of their subject area to degree level.
