Sociology

The course considers sociology to be the systematic study of forms of social organisation and patterns within social life. The course explores the relevance of theory and philosophy for thinking sociologically. It also considers the range of methods employed for engaging in sociological research. We will provide you with a supportive and intellectually exciting study environment that is responsive to your individual needs. In addition, we aim to encourage the development of critical skills, including argument, analysis, theoretical exposition and description, precision, and good methodological skills that enable the development of confidence and professionalism in relation to both your work and other students. We also aim to prepare you for either further academic work or for other careers where the general skills acquired will be of invaluable benefit.
