This Sociology programme from the University of Greenwich will allow you to specialise in the study of sociology whilse also incorporating courses from a range of options to allow you to build your degree around your interests and career aspirations.

Sociology is an innovative and vibrant subject covering a range of issues from popular culture to social justice, from gender and identity to global relations. A broad foundation in sociological thinking and theory is offered while also supporting you to pursue your own ideas and interests through focused research. Available courses include: Drugs and Society; Global Relations; Emotions in the Social World; Gender, Race and Crime; and Education and Society.

You will develop a range of intellectual and practical transferable skills that provide a strong foundation for future employment in areas such as social welfare policy; media, marketing and advertising; local and central government; and community and charity organisations.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To enhance understanding of important and controversial issues in society, including debates about gender, ethnicity, crime and deviance, social justice, global politics and cultural production
  • To provide a pathway of study that encompasses the main sociological debates as well as strengths in applied sociology, global studies and cultural sociology
  • To produce graduates who have skills that can be applied in a range of careers including skills in critical thinking, practical and applied research, communication skills, and an ability to work both independently and in groups, and to engage with the modern world with confidence.

Assessment

Learning and teaching takes place through seminars, workshops, laboratory sessions and lectures along with support from your personal tutor throughout your degree, with some e-learning. Typically, students are assessed through a mixture of coursework and examinations, but assessment may also take the form of multiple-choice tests and portfolios of work or projects.

Career options

Our strength in applied sociology combined with our focus on developing job skills means that Greenwich sociology graduates are well prepared for later careers. Work areas include: youth work, community work, welfare provision, charitable organisations, local and national government, teaching, health administration, personnel management, publishing, marketing and social research.
