This exciting new course studies sociology with political analysis, involving changing demographics, societal challenges and issues relating to globalisation and migration in society today.
Sociology seeks to address the need for a clear understanding of society and social processes, while politics provides the opportunity to consider how power is allocated, who takes part in decision-making at multiple levels, the meaning and experiences of justice, conflict, (in)equality and citizenship, and to consider these in the context of the most pressing contemporary global issues.
This course provides you with the opportunity to develop specialist knowledge of diversity, social processes and social change, critical debates in contemporary politics, global governance and international relations and political theories from a sociological perspective. Graduates will be equipped with communication skills, along with analytical and research skills that are increasingly necessary for professional work.
The BA (Hons) Sociology with Politics degree gives graduates the platform to seek employment in local and national government departments, education and the corporate sector, as well as postgraduate study.
