Sociology is the study of humans in society. It sounds broad, and that’s because it is. Our courses will take you into the most fascinating areas of social existence and across every aspect of modern life, here and around the globe. Our flexible degree structure provides the freedom to shape the content of your degree to suit your own interests and aspirations.

Sociology: On Demand
Take a look around Leicester: On Demand, our collection of videos showcasing our fabulous campus and facilities, our courses and much more.
Our compact, Covid-safe campus is small enough to get everywhere easily but big enough that it never feels crowded. We’ll show you the David Wilson Library, the Danielle Brown Sports Centre and our newly opened, completely refurbished Students’ Union, as well as teaching facilities.
We would love to show you around - book your place on one of our campus tours today.Explore our campus

Dr Paul Ian Campbell
Lecturer in Sociology

Professor John Goodwin
Professor of Sociology and Sociological Practice
As sociologists, we belong to a ‘community of practice’. My role as an academic is to teach the craft - the ‘doing’ of sociology - and enable your membership of that community.
