About Sociology at Bournemouth University

Discover what makes society tick, what the glue that holds it together is and the threats that could rip it apart; sociology is rapidly becoming more relevant in our contemporary world and as a result, the number and range of job opportunities has escalated.

Taught by expert sociologists, this robustly academic social science course integrates global perspectives throughout the three years of study, providing a broader outlook and understanding of issues in society.

As well as benefiting from a huge breadth of subjects, which will give you a solid grounding in sociological concepts, theories and research, you’ll get to participate in exciting seminars and lectures held by an exciting and eclectic mix of guest speakers. Most importantly though, you’ll have the distinct advantage of completing a second or third year, 30-week or 20-day work placement, which gives you a professional skillset and crucial contacts as well as making you more employable.
