Another of the social sciences, focusing on the study of people and the institutions which shape society. There are a lot of overlapping subjects between Sociology, International Studies and Criminology.

Compulsory subjects are Critical Analytical Skills in second year and Applied Research Methods in third year. The best Student Experience Survey the faculty could find to promote Critical Analytical Skills was “This subject is well organised”, so have fun with that. If you’re interested in humans and how we interact, and prefer more contextualised work as opposed to the theoretical stuff in Anthropology, give Sociology a go. Recommended subjects include Sexual Politics (POLS20011) and Law in Society SOLS10001.
