About Sociology at University of Nottingham

Focused on exploring societies, social relationships and institutions like families, workplaces and prisons, this course develops a strong capacity for critical sociological thinking.

Studying sociology makes us question and explore the realities of the world around us; the taken-for-granted notions concerning how the social world is organised.

Sociologists develop a keen sociological imagination with which to think reflexively and critically about almost everything, from why we might dress our female children in pink, to what is missing from the Modern Slavery Bill and the implications of climate change and global migration.

You will consider questions such as:

  • How are societies created, reproduced and sustained over time?
  • How do factors like class, gender, ethnicity and sexuality impact upon people's everyday lives and access to the world's resources?
  • What social rules and processes bind and separate people not only as individuals, but as members of associations, groups and institutions, both in everyday encounters and in the global social context?

This course is designed to offer flexibility and allow you to focus your studies on a set of issues that you find particularly interesting. For example, you might choose to specialise in cultures and identities, global studies and human rights, or perhaps inequalities and social justice. The choice is yours.
