Sociology is a subject that opens your mind, that helps you to connect your own lived experience to the wider social and economic context, and that offers the opportunity to engage in an empowering form of student-led learning. Our graduates often speak of studying Sociology as a “life changing” experience.

The Sociology Department is widely acknowledged as a leading national and international centre of teaching and research excellence, as well as an
exemplar of public sociology and engagement. We seek to equip you with the necessary resources and skills – intellectual, methodological, communicative and active citizenship – to meet the challenges of our fast-changing contemporary society and to contribute productively to social transformation.

Sociology is the study of human social life, groups and societies. It is a discipline that teaches you to:

  • develop critical skills and powers of argumentation based on empirical evidence.
  • become a creative thinker and to think outside of the box.
  • engage in a constructive enterprise, oriented toward the promotion of equality and social justice.

Taking Politics and/or Sociology to degree level is an ideal preparation to teach Politics and Society at second level following a Professional Master of Education (PME).
