BSc (Hons) Sociology
Looking at life through a lens of inequality, difference and diversity, sociology at Plymouth brings real issues into sharp focus. Supported by a nationally renowned academic team, you’ll explore how topics such as class, ethnicity, food, gender, health, media and poverty shape our lives and experiences. You’ll develop key transferable skills that employers actively seek through an established, work-based learning programme, field trips and international exchange opportunities to study abroad.
We are proud to be ranked 6th in the country for sociology in terms of the overall level of student satisfaction (Guardian League Tables, 2019). In the most recent published National Student Survey, 100 per cent of students agreed that the course ‘challenged me to achieve my best work’, ‘provided opportunities to explore ideas or concepts in depth’, ‘provided me with opportunities to bring information and ideas together from different topics’, and ‘helpful comments were received on my work’.*
