Sociology and English Literature
You can study Sociology as a joint honours degree with English Literature (50% Sociology and 50% English Literature).
Sociology, and this course, investigates social life and the way it shapes people's behaviour, beliefs and identity. Its subject matter ranges from an examination of the face-to-face interactions of daily life, to large-scale social institutions, social movements and global processes. By understanding the social world, we gain a better understanding of ourselves and our own social situations. Sociology may also be studied through the medium of Welsh.
English Literature course offers you the opportunity to study a broad range of English Literature in small groups, led by the research experts in the field, in an atmosphere of creative, scholarly enterprise in order to develop skills of critical analysis that are highly valued by employers.
