Studying Sociology at university

How can we understand and explain diverse social and political issues? Why does social inequality continue to exist? And how can we improve people's lives and experiences?

Sociology considers these issues and more. If your students are thinking about studying a degree in Sociology, here's a taster lecture from our academics. They'll see what it's like to study this fascinating subject, and the skills and knowledge they'll develop to engage critically with the world around them.
