Sociology at Leicester

Sociology at Leicester

We were one of the very first universities to teach sociology in the UK and we have a long and well-respected tradition both in teaching and research. Our courses provide a thorough and exciting grounding in key areas of sociological analysis, theory and research.

Sociology at Leicester is part of the School of Media, Communication and Sociology.

The University’s research is ranked 30 in the UK in the Research Excellence Framework 2021, according to analysis by Times Higher Education.

In lectures and seminars we are encouraged to share our views and opinions. Being able to shape our own learning is truly amazing.
