About Sociology at School of Sociology and Social Policy, University of Leeds

The BA Sociology degree examines the interconnections between individuals and wider society. You'll explore changing social, cultural, economic and political processes such as the identities, inequalities and policies that shape our lives.

Bridging big ideas and practical problems, you'll consider how classical, contemporary and emerging styles of thought or the ideas of key thinkers can shed light on social issues such as crime, disability, family and gender issues, racism, social care and youth unemployment. You'll examine social inequalities, protest and struggles over power, and question what it means to be a 'good citizen' today.

A wide variety of optional modules will allow you to focus on topics that suit your interests and career plans, from poverty to gender studies, violence or consumerism. Your studies will be informed by the latest research being conducted within the School by academics with an impressively diverse range of interests.

Quantitative Research Methods (QRM) pathway

You'll have the opportunity to apply for a place on our BSc Sociology with Quantitative Research Methods pathway which gives a quantitative skills focus to your final year of study with compulsory modules in this area. This pathway will help you develop advanced analytical skills, which are in demand across the public, private, and third sectors.

You will learn statistical analysis techniques and their application to real data (e.g. survey data or statistical data relating to poverty, crime or electoral behaviour amongst others) using statistical software. You will also write a dissertation in which you will analyse quantitative data to examine a sociology/social policy research question.

This pathway is open to all students as long as you attain a 2:1 across all modules in your second year and a 2:1 in the Sociology and Social Policy Research Methods module. You are not required to have done Mathematics at A level.
