In your foundation year, you’ll gain skills that are necessary for academic study by exploring themes in social sciences. This year will cover a broad range of contemporary themes and social issues by examining issues from a range of disciplines in social sciences.
During the foundation year you will develop your academic skills. You will also reflect on a range of themes, such as self and society, as well as sociological theories, exploring how they relate to contemporary society. You’ll develop critical analysis skills that will help you construct well-reasoned arguments, both orally and in writing. Teaching you the principles of research will also play an important part of this foundation year. You’ll also learn how to plan, draft and improve on essay writing skills.
Throughout the duration of your Sociology (including foundation year) (Hons) course from London Metropolitan University you’ll be supported by your academic mentor and tutor, who’ll help you settle into university life and ensure you progress academically. There will also be opportunities to attend workshops to help you improve skills such as interview, essay writing and research.
The following three years will focus on more in-depth study of sociology.
