    Course Summary

    Sociology is the scientific study of the way people interact with each other. It looks at people as individuals, but it really hits its stride dealing with people as abstract groups subject to statistical analysis. It looks at how these groups are affected by and affect the social, cultural and historical forces which influence behaviour and define the contexts of human interaction.  

    The BSc in Sociology teaches you how to see and analyse the world in sociological terms. That means learning many different perspectives on social life and interactions. It also means becoming adept at statistical mathematics and both quantitative and qualitative research methods.

    Early in the program you’ll get an overview of sociology in general, as well as learning the basics of sociological analysis. Later you’ll explore the different analytical methods, theoretical structures and academic theories you’ll use, and begin to apply them to real social issues with more and more independence.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
