Your insight into the social world is unique. We will encourage you to explore your own social identity and consider your experiences of the world. You will let this self awareness inform your studies and you may even discover new specialisms you are passionate about pursuing.
In Year 2 and 3 of your studies you can choose from a range of modules covering topics from across sociology and criminology. This allows you to tailor your degree to your interests and future career ambitions.
On specialist modules you will learn qualitative and quantitative research methods that are used by sociologists and apply them to your own research. We will introduce you to the different theoretical perspectives you will use to analyse topics such as:
- The body
We will help you develop your critical thinking skills so you can back up your ideas with evidence and reason. Our team of academic staff will support you throughout your studies. They are all active in social research, meaning the material you cover is the most relevant it can be. Work with them in seminars, workshops and 1 to 1 tutorials and let their expertise become your own.
