About Politics and Sociology at University of Lincoln

This joint degree offers the opportunity to gain an insight into the impact of domestic and global politics on the nature of society. Teaching is informed by emerging political themes and contemporary social debate.

Politics and sociology are both important disciplines which, through the study of different modes of social and political life, offer insight into the diverse and different groups and structures that make up society. Our BA (Hons) Politics and Sociology degree aims to engage students with emerging key themes relevant to both disciplines.

This degree aims to provide a range of modules, drawing upon the expertise of staff from across the School of Social and Political Sciences, whose research actively informs contemporary academic and public policy debates.

This course provides students with an opportunity to explore innovative academic theories and contemporary political debate. A diverse range of modules is designed to enable students to deepen their understanding of the society in which we live and develop valuable transferable skills.

Throughout the course, there may be opportunities to benefit from, and engage with, academic research projects being conducted by the School.
