Why study Sociology?
Sociology explores the ways in which our lives are connected to the bigger picture: to global issues, events and processes. A dynamic range of units allows students to examine issues of critical importance to modern societies, including:
- the impact of globalisation
- environmental sustainability
- health and well-being of communities
- the connections between ethnicity, identity and community
- global inequality
- the pursuit of social justice
Sociology graduates are equipped with a broad range of skills which can be applied to a number of vocational areas, such as analysing and interpreting data, robust communication skills, sensitivity to issues of social justice and an ability to see social problems and responses from more than one perspective.
