About Sociology at University of Exeter

Our Sociology degree introduces you to the sociological ways of thinking, seeing and investigating the social, cultural and political world in which we live. The core modules in Years 1 and 2 concentrate on the skills, methods and theories of sociological inquiry, leading to increasing specialisation through optional modules in Years 2 and 3 and the dissertation in Year 3.

Theoretical modules cover the history and development of sociological theory, from Durkheim and Weber to Goffman, Garfinkel and Baudrillard, including contemporary debates on individualism, functionalism and interactionism and postmodern theories. Other core modules concentrate on the subject matter of sociology and encourage students to develop a critical understanding of the rise and transformation of modern societies from the 18th century to the present day, with a particular focus on the last three decades.
