Do you find yourself questioning and challenging conventional assumptions about the world we live in? Sociology is concerned with understanding social life and our place within it. It helps us understand and tackle difficult questions, such as issues of poverty, immigration, privacy and social unrest, as well as providing insights into our cultural and everyday lives. Sociologists have for decades been providing answers to difficult government and policy questions, informing industry and challenging inequalities. The social sciences have a long and well established history at the University of Salford, having been taught here since 1954, and today, the sociology subject group continues to be extremely strong both in terms of its teaching quality and research excellence.
In the first year all modules are compulsory and we will equip you with the study skills needed to get the best out of your degree, and introduce you to both the nature and scope of research in sociology. In your second year you build on the foundation of year one by looking in more detail at different issues and perspectives. You will also have the opportunity to deepen your knowledge of selected topics by choosing optional modules (from the indicative list below). In your third year you will take two compulsory modules, which includes an Independent Study module.
The University of Salford is hugely diverse and multicultural with a focus on practical experience and skills. We have fantastic connections with ITV and the BBC at the newly opened MediaCityUK complex, making for a highly engaging and creative student experience. The Students' Union has amazing opportunities in activities and volunteering and offers tonnes of support.
