Covering issues of power, politics and identity, sociology through the life course, education, media, embodiment, social inequalities, and race and ethnicity, you will develop knowledge of sociological theories and methods that will enable you to critically understand social inequality and social justice. This knowledge alongside development of key skills can be applied to a diverse range of careers.
