Discover Sociology - 27 November 2013

The Discover Sociology Day explored in depth the study of sociology at The University of Manchester. The day consisted of an overview of the range of courses, a careers presentation on opportunities following graduation in Sociology, a lecture, a tour of the facilities and a choice of workshops from across a range of sociology topics.

Studying sociology will enable you to see the big picture in terms of how broader social developments affect individual lives, and to understand how we got to where we are today as a society. You will be taught by staff members who are specialists in their field, meaning that you will learn about latest developments within sociology. You will also be encouraged to use your sociological skills to critically examine contemporary society.

Opportunities for students during university and after graduation were discussed with staff and current students. This day gave students a real understanding of what it's like to study sociology at The University of Manchester.
