The Department of Sociology offers a BA/BSc in Sociology and a BA in Politics. Our students frequently tell us that taking Sociology and Politics has been ‘a life changing experience.’ 

Listen to one of our undergradutes who took both Sociology and Politics talk about her experience.


Our graduates are critical and creative thinkers who make a contribution in many different walks of life - from teaching and politics, to the media and business.
