About BSc Social Policy and Sociology

This Joint Honours degree explores different ways of understanding crucial issues within public and social life. It combines the focus of social policy on wellbeing with sociology's insight into how contemporary societies operate.

Sociology explores the structures of societies and how they constitute social patterns. This is crucial to our understanding of how different groups in society experience wellbeing, as well as the dynamics needed to change patterns of inequality.

The School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies and the School for Policy Studies both have an impressive reputation for teaching and research. This course combination offers an enriching experience with exciting intellectual challenges.

You will also have the opportunity to spend half a year studying abroad at a partner university.
