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

This interdisciplinary degree combines the study of society with cultural and political processes which shape human experience. As a Politics and Sociology student you will study the organisation and structure of society and consider the changing nature of human action, as well as the political theories that structure our political systems and the social forces that shape political life. You'll gain expertise in analysis, research, critical thinking and more as you develop an understanding of key topics.

In addition to areas such as sociology of modern societies, comparative politics and central problems in sociology, you'll use examples from around the world to gain a firm grounding in the institutions and practices of modern political systems while exploring social values and the impact of social divisions. We offer a wide range of optional modules, enabling you to develop your interests in specialist areas such as politics of contemporary China, the sociology of gender, the politics of aid or protest and social movements.

You'll have the opportunity to study abroad which will enable you to develop an international perspective on your subject or undertake a work placement which will help you to develop your skills, and give you an insight into working life in a particular organisation or sector. Throughout the course, you'll gain a diverse set of skills that will be valuable to you as a citizen, as well as for your future career plans.
