Sociology

The University of Bradford

UCAS Course code L305

Overview

Sociology is a global and vital discipline. As a Sociology student at Bradford you’ll analyse and understand the social world with depth and conviction. The subject is driven by those who have an interest in not only studying society, but also a desire to make society more just and equal.

Our approach to Sociology at Bradford starts with ensuring you are intellectually stimulated and engaged with the subject matter. We do this firstly through our academic staff, all of whom are research-active and highly enthusiastic about what they teach.

All our teaching is student-focussed. For us, it’s vital that we enable our students to engage with a range of contemporary and relevant subjects, debates and issues through a diversity of sociologically-grounded perspectives and theories.

We focus on how society can be better understood, and made more just, through exploring markers of identity, such as class, ethnicity, gender and sexuality. The modules that make up our degree also reflect the ways in which power presents itself and influences us on a daily basis.

Through linking theory with the real world, you are encouraged to apply your sociological knowledge to social contexts whether they are related to inequality, the state, crime, difference, securitization and mass media, or those every day, taken-for-granted features of life which seem less important, such as consumption, taste and the performance of our identities.

The course will therefore give you opportunities to explore and analyse the nature of diverse societies, and develop informed insights into the challenges facing a globalised and interconnected world.

Studying Sociology at Bradford allows you to develop and apply your skills of reasoning and critical assessment, and to understand a broad range of theoretical, practical and contemporary issues and social problems.
