About Sociology at Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Manchester Metropolitan University

BA Sociology offers exciting opportunities for you to study the cutting-edge discipline of sociology in the vibrant city of Manchester. It is aimed at students who want to understand and analyse contemporary social phenomena, trends and struggles, as well as think critically about solutions to pressing social issues.

The first year introduces you to the building blocks of sociology: key sociological concepts and theories, social divisions and problems, and major transformations - such as globalisation or digital culture - which are altering the fabric of contemporary society. You will receive training in a wide range of research methods during the first two years, to become equipped to undertake your own independent research project in your final year.

Our large, multi-disciplinary department believes in offering you extensive optionality to study specific areas of sociology in depth. Throughout the degree, there is an emphasis on developing skills and experiences that are relevant to professional careers, including work experience, study-abroad schemes, and independent project work. If you wish, you can study a foreign language as part of your degree and in your final year. You also have the option of moving onto the BSc route, which means receiving extensive quantitative methods training and graduating with a BSc title.

    “Studying in the UK has been my dream since I was a child. I chose to study my course because the modules allow me to learn different subjects to support my professional career and my country in the future. The lecturers are very professional and come from different backgrounds, which allows me to learn from different perspectives.

    The student life in Manchester is amazing, feeling far from home makes all international students unite. Manchester is very welcoming to all new cultures. My personal tutor has given me tireless support to make sure that I enjoy the learning and living process whilst I am studying.”

    Tze Yan Lim, BA (Hons) Photography

    Testimonial from Tze Yan Lim, BA (Hons) Photography, student at Faculty of Arts and Humanities

    "I chose to study this course because I am passionate about every aspect of photography and choosing this course enabled me to explore all the possibilities of it. I studied the syllabus of the course and it suited my needs, plus the University has great facilities and helpful technicians and professors.

    The thing I enjoy most about my course is that I get to experiment with different approaches to making a photograph and I am always encouraged to embrace failure when making work. The course has helped me to prepare for my future career by helping me place myself into the broader environment of art-making.”

    Isabella López García, BA (Hons) Fashion Buying and Merchandising

    Testimonial from Isabella López García, BA (Hons) Fashion Buying and Merchandising, student at Faculty of Arts and Humanities

    "Every year our tutors bring people from the industry from different backgrounds; entrepreneurs, managers, industry experts, which has helped me to see what I could do in the future, as well as being a great opportunity to network and be inspired!

    The thing I love the most about Manchester Metropolitan is the amount of effort that is put into student support, no matter the issue, there will be someone willing to help. The international welcome week and all the activities that were related to it were remarkably helpful. I got to meet many people that were experiencing things similar to me."
