Sociology is the study of social life. It engages with theory and research to make sense of the forms that societies take and the impact they have on the biographies of individuals.

The Sociology BA (Hons) course at the University of Bedfordshire is a lively and multi-vocal subject. It draws from a wide range of subjects such as politics, cultural studies, law, economics, international relations, development studies, social work, childhood studies, social policy, anthropology, philosophy, education and ethics to broaden and deepen your understanding of the world around you.

You will be encouraged to reflect upon the contested nature of social realities, problems and opportunities and invited to think locally and globally about lived realities, ideas and perspectives and to identify if you are part of the problem or part of the solution.

This course aims to make you feel alive in your subject while also preparing you for graduate employment.
