Sociology and Policy

The questions around how and why our world has emerged are what underpin the social sciences. Developing insight into the past, recognising the impression it’s left on the present, and interpreting how it will affect our future.

Our programmes critically engage with key issues facing contemporary societies including environmental change, advancing technology, gender equality, diplomatic relations and the power of media. You’ll enhance your analytical skills and contribute to the biggest issues of today as well as tomorrow.

Explore the ideas that changed the world and their underlying motivations. Analyse social interaction. Challenge your preconceptions of justice. Develop fresh perspectives on power and ethics. And gain an understanding of the ways political, cultural, social and economic structures interrelate.
