What makes Sociology at Worcester special?
We’re a good, nice-sized course. Plenty of opportunity to make friends, and staff with a personal interest in you, in a small city which many students get to know and love.
We make Sociology fascinating: It offers new thinking for a changing world. It makes you think; then you help others think. See from different angles, discuss new ideas, think beyond the obvious. Above all, decide: can people make a difference?
Our Single Honours Sociology covers it all: crime, gender, education, environment, ‘race’, homelessness, media, social media, family, politics, religion, welfare, work, leisure, psychology etc.
The course is designed to help you do well. Typically, most of our students get first class and 2.1 degrees.
Sociology opens up a range of career opportunities: unlike specialist subject courses, it doesn’t tie you to a particular career.
There are plenty of real-life research opportunities, interviewing or observing etc. When using theory, we make it relatable, showing it can help with real problems.
Previous study of Sociology not required, but if you have, we’ll show you exciting new ideas.
Jessica White (Worcester Sociology graduate Summer 2019) says: “Best decision of my life so far was choosing to study Sociology at the University of Worcester. Thank you to the whole department for being so inspiring and caring and preparing me for the next challenge.”
