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.
