Sociology BA (Hons)

Are we moving beyond modernity? How has authoritarian and utopian literature, philosophy and the modern Hollywood blockbuster shaped and informed our society? How do the global developments of the 21st Century impact upon the developing nations? These are all questions that are posed in this dynamic and exciting programme.

There is an opportunity in your second year, to undertake a week long field trip to an international setting. Our students have already travelled to the Middle East (Abu Dhabi) and future trips are already being planned to Europe (Berlin) and/or the Caribbean (Cuba). This is optional and costs for a two-week visit will not be more than £1,500 per student.

Recent graduates have described their experience of Sociology as, “very supportive”, ” rich and very challenging”, “well-structured and well taught”, and “thoroughly enjoyable and mind expanding”.

You will enjoy specialist input from careers guidance experts, providing an excellent foundation for you to go into a range of careers.
