Sociology is the scientific study of human behaviour and life chances; for instance why people behave as they do, and why some individuals have different life outcomes compared with others. It will help you to understand the world around you, how societies work, the causes of social problems and their potential solutions.
Sociology is an excellent foundation for degrees including Sociology, Criminology, Media, Geography and History and could aid pathways to degrees such as Law, Business Management, Journalism, and medical and nursing professions. Sociology is highly relevant for any degrees that involve interaction with individuals – including medical degrees.
