Overview

The Sociology programme at the University of Roehampton will help you understand how societies are created and how they change. You will learn how educational attainment, ethnicity, gender and geography all play a part in people’s place in society, including the resources they accumulate and the networks they build. You’ll leave with a different view of other individuals and the world around you.  

We offer exciting modules to fit with your interests. Living in a Mobile World, for example, includes a field trip and you will be able to apply what you have learned to your everyday life. Other modules such as Becoming a Sociologist offer opportunities to develop valuable, hands-on skills for your career, as you analyse the world through focus groups, interviews and surveys. 

Career options

Sociology develops essential skills for working in a variety of industries and businesses including the government and charities. You could build a career in the criminal justice system, community development or social work. You could also work in the media, campaigning, marketing, public relations or as a development officer.
