84.2 per cent of social science graduates are in employment (The Campaign for Social Science 2013). The sociology programme is oriented to cultivating graduates who can think for themselves and are animated by an ethic of public service. Through the development of critical thinking and practical skills, graduates will be prepared for work in a rapidly changing world.
You’ll be supported throughout by Dr Hazel Bending, Dr Paul Sutton, Dr Julie Evans and Dr Colin Dawson. This team of tutors is your one-stop shop for inspiration, thought-provoking lectures and enthusiastic encouragement. Their extensive research specialisms include small-group teaching, leadership and management, and young people in society.
