Sociology (Including Foundation Year) BSc (Hons) (Full-time)
Our Sociology (including foundation year) BSc is a four-year degree designed to lead to an undergraduate qualification in sociology if you don’t hold the necessary requirements or qualifications to enter the undergraduate degree. On graduation, you’ll receive the same title and award as students who started via the three-year route.
During your foundation year you will explore a broad range of current themes and social issues from an interdisciplinary perspective. You’ll develop academic study and professional skills for your future career and boost your confidence, especially if you have been out of education for some time. You will also take one module that is more closely related to sociology, so you’ll be able to prepare for in-depth undergraduate study of the subject in the following years.
In your foundation year, you’ll gain skills that are necessary for academic study by exploring themes in social sciences. This year will cover a broad range of contemporary themes and social issues by examining issues from a range of disciplines in social sciences.
During the foundation year you will develop your academic skills. You will also reflect on a range of themes, such as self and society, as well as sociological theories, exploring how they relate to contemporary society. You’ll develop critical analysis skills that will help you construct well-reasoned arguments, both orally and in writing. Teaching you the principles of research will also play an important part of this foundation year. You’ll also learn how to plan, draft and improve on essay writing skills.
In addition to the University's standard entry requirements, you should have:
- at least one A level (or a minimum of 32 UCAS points from an equivalent Level 3 qualification, eg BTEC Subsidiary/National/BTEC Extended Diploma)
- GCSE English Language at grade C (grade 4) or above (or equivalent)
If you are a mature student with significant work experience, you are invited to apply for this course on the basis of the knowledge and skills you have developed through your work.
