Investigating the nature of societal structures, and their impact on people's everyday lives and interaction is central to the Sociology (Honours) at the University of Westminster. You will consider questions of how power is exercised and normalised at all levels of society, from the state to individual emotions, through explorations of social class, gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, and other factors. You will gain a sensitive understanding of diversity as well as a keen self-awareness and ability to make sense of your own social location in terms of identities, culture, beliefs and values.
You will be taught by active researchers whose innovative books and articles are helping to set the global sociological agenda. The course makes full use of the amazing resources our central London location provides, from the museums on our doorstep to street-art ﬁeld trips and the diverse cultures and subcultures that will inform and inspire your own research.
