Course Introduction

The Sociology BA course provides a space in which students can debate the controversial issues of the day in an informed, supportive and friendly fashion. Empowering students to make sense of their own lives, to develop (and possibly change) their opinions, to learn from others and understand the world in which we find ourselves is at the heart of the Sociology BA Programme. There are no easy answers to the questions we face, but there is a fascinating journey to undertake in search of them.
