Overview

(Hons) Social Policy and Sociology at University of Lincoln  draws on these two key social science disciplines to offer an insight into the diverse social groups, structures and practices that make up society.

At the forefront of contemporary social debates, this degree aims to analyse and critique the different social constructions of everyday life. It offers students the opportunity to engage with key debates about social problems and the welfare of citizens, alongside the study of sociological theory and research methods.

There is the opportunity to experience social policy and sociology from a different perspective. Students can apply for a study abroad year at one of our partner institutions, during the third year of the programme.
