Sociology explores critical issues and dilemmas across all aspects of society, from power and inequality to the organisation of urban space. Our BSc Sociology programme involves the study of social action and processes, social movements, race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality and class, power and inequality. Students can select from a wide range of optional courses, addressing subjects such as health, homicide and technology, before completing an independent research project in their final year.
Students who have taken and passed at least one language course in each year of their degree can opt to receive a language specialism attached to their degree certificate and transcript. The three courses must be consecutively harder in level, for example: beginner, intermediate and advanced. Students must take all courses in the same language (French, Spanish, German, Mandarin or Russian) in order to qualify for the specialism. Degree certificates which include a language specialism will state the language in the title, for example: BSc Sociology with French.
