People who study sociology progress into a wide variety of jobs. You will gain a range of relevant and valuable skills that can be applied to both an organisational or community context.

We offer a number of opportunities, activities and advice services to prepare our sociology students for successful employability and professional careers.

Guest speakers

We welcome guest speakers on a regular basis as they enrich the curriculum and enable you to see how your academic theory can be transferred to the work place.

Over the past 20 years, we have built up close partnerships with a range of local voluntary, statutory and commercial organisations, which means that you can work with them during your semester-long placement and work on related campaigns.


Apply your knowledge in a work placement, with the chance to study in Europe and the USA.
