What Our Students Say

Sociology is an all round subject. It has a little bit of everything such as Politics and History. It also helps develop essential skills such as being able to debate and criticise what others readily accept. This subject will challenge your beliefs and help you broaden your knowledge to provide an effective argument. I would definitely recommend this subject.
