Message from Professor Fran Tonkiss, Director of Undergraduate Studies, Sociology Department
“The BSc Sociology is perhaps the most critical degree offered by the Department of Sociology: throughout a combination of lectures, seminars, workshops and numerous activities, we hope to inspire in you a passion for the discipline and the possibilities of the sociological imagination.
The degree is challenging: you will have to deal with new types of knowledge, collaborate with your peers in novel ways, and critically assess some of the most profound taken-for-granted assumptions of the modern world. It is, however, also a rewarding experience: you will learn to create, collaborate and think in new and critical ways.”
You can learn more about us as a department on our departmental webpages.
