About BSc Sociology with Study Abroad

Sociology is a well-established discipline, as relevant to the study of 21st-century societies as to the sweeping changes of the Industrial Revolution.

Sociologists are concerned with society’s structures, forms of action and cultural arrangements, and are uniquely placed to understand the changes of social life. This degree provides the academic and professional support needed for you to develop your own sociological imagination.

This course follows the structure of the BSc Sociology degree, but with an additional year spent abroad at an English-speaking university.

The structure of year one provides a solid grounding in sociology, followed by a greater choice of units linked to staff research interests. Units have previously covered subjects such as ethnicity, racism, popular music, modern slavery, migration and intimacy.

There is a strong emphasis on research skills, with compulsory units in the first two years. In your final year you will undertake supervised research that draws on these skills.

The year abroad is an exciting opportunity to experience and study a different society and culture from a sociological perspective. For further details on year abroad opportunities, please visit our Global Opportunities website.
