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

Our Social Policy and Sociology degree is an interdisciplinary programme which examines the changing nature of social relationships, why social problems and inequalities exist and how the institutions of the state respond to them.

You'll investigate the dynamics between individuals and wider society and how they impact on one another. Bridging big ideas and practical problems, you'll study important thinkers and theories in sociology alongside issues like social integration, power and class divisions.

At the same time, you'll explore how poverty, health, housing, education and crime among others have come to be seen as social problems and examine education, housing and urban policies to understand how states provide for people's welfare.

Taking this interdisciplinary course enables you to select a wide range of exciting optional modules based on our world-leading research specialisms, including globalisation, drugs and crime, race and ethnicity, disability, protests and consumerism.

Quantitative Research Methods (QRM) pathway

You'll have the opportunity to apply for a place on our BSc Social Policy and 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.
