About Sociology at Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Wolverhampton

The Sociology degree offers you the chance to analyse and understand the complexities of the global world in which we live. During your studies, you will learn about the concepts, theories and methods essential to what we call a ‘sociological imagination’ – that special way of identifying, describing and understanding the nature of social life.

Over the course of your studies, you will develop critical understanding of a range of institutional conditions, cultural processes and social relations, within and across societies. In the course of learning selected ‘social facts’ of society, you will be able to apply those concepts, theories and methods that are unique to this exciting discipline.

Students are encouraged to share knowledge and be enterprising with their ideas in self-directed and cooperative learning activities. You will acquire the skills necessary to gather evidence and apply theories to a range of social issues, and to communicate your ideas through interpersonal and digitally literate ways. At each level of study you are given the opportunity to undertake accredited voluntary work in the local community or a work placement – an experience that broadens your sociological knowledge, deepens your appreciation of civic responsibility and enhances your opportunities for graduate employment.
