    Study Sociology

    Sociology is a highly subjective area of study, that requires students to form their own opinions. Despite this subjectivity, the key definitions of sociology are ‘the science of society’ or ‘the study of society’. The content of a sociology degree will differ slightly at each institution.

    Your degree will encompass a wide range of topics, including the behaviour of humans as social beings, the patterns of human relationships and interaction, as well as gaining an insight on the different aspects of society through other social sciences, such as history, psychology and economics.

    A sociology degree will require you to develop your knowledge in a variety of areas. These will include the sciences, humanities, mathematics, economics and history, among others. You will be given the opportunity to develop your higher education research skills, as well as gain experience of social life in the contemporary world.

    Your modules will be delivered mainly as lectures and tutorials. Depending on your institution, you may have the chance to undertake some practical work either on campus, or as part of a placement off campus.
