Sociology

Sociology

 

Sociology is the study of how society is organised and how we experience life. Sociological ideas are increasingly widely recognised and concepts such as ‘moral panic’ and charisma are now in everyday use. The questions the discipline of Sociology asks have lost none of their challenge or excitement and students will gain the opportunity to grapple with these ideas in new, constantly evolving ways.
