This Sociology course runs in 2016/17.
How do societies develop and why are they so often characterised by inequality? Can we ever achieve an equal society? In what ways do social structures limit or determine individual action? This course seeks to understand and answer these complex issues as they relate to modern British society and beyond.
Sociology at Coventry is a lively discipline linking classical and contemporary theory to consider current social issues, and can provide you with relevant expertise for employment in a range of fields in today’s global society.
As well as gaining a thorough grounding in social theory and research methodology, you will develop an understanding of the most important issues of our times, learning how to analyse and understand the society we live in. You will think critically about the changes and challenges of everyday social life.

- links with national and local employers including the Refugee Centre and Citizens Advice Bureau;
- placement opportunities with local authorities and community, health and welfare settings
(subject to application);

The course is regularly reviewed and updated to reflect current social issues, debates and new developments in the social sciences.

In your second year you will broaden your understanding of social theory and social phenomena, acquire social research training and further specialise in specific subject areas of your choice such as gender, race and ethnicity or social class. You then have the option of a year abroad or a placement.
Your final year will allow you to strengthen your knowledge on core topics and complete a dissertation in your own area of expertise and interest.HOW WILL THIS COURSE BE TAUGHT?
