My degree in Sociology, and I really enjoyed it. I think it gave me the skills to think critically, to undertake research, and to have an open and enquiring mindNatalie S Smith / BSocSc Sociology
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 you will learn about the latest developments within Sociology. You will also be encouraged to use your sociological skills to critically examine contemporary society.
In addition, opportunities for students during university and after graduation will be discussed with staff and current students. This day will give students a real understanding of what it is like to study Sociology at The University of Manchester.
