Delve beneath the surface of everyday life and modern societies and prepare for careers including community development, policy making and social care with our Sociology degree in Cambridge.
On this degree you will explore what shapes societies individual lives, the relations that connect individuals, groups and institutions within societies and those that the divide them. As a BA (Hons) Sociology student at ARU, you'll look at the work of classical sociologists, such as Weber and Marx, and contemporary issues such as individualism and global communication and how they are changing human behaviour.
You'll be able to specialise in areas that interest you too - such as the impact of intoxicants on societies, cybercrime, social control, sport or nature and society - through our range of optional modules.
We have a supportive community of staff and students at ARU and our Sociology course ranked second in the UK for student satisfaction (The Complete University Guide 2020). It also scored 94% for 'academic support' in the National Student Survey 2019.
