Our students receive a top-class education through research-led teaching that is delivered by internationally recognised leaders in their fields. Through our unique range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, students develop the knowledge base and research skills to engage with the key challenges and debates that are shaping policy-formation, professional practice and social life in a rapidly changing world. Our central London location means that our students have direct access to the learning and cultural resources of a global city.
Our academics have particular expertise in: criminology and criminal justice; cultural sociology; European data analysis; food policy; media and communications; migration and ethnicities; and work, class and gender.
At the end of their studies, our students graduate with a highly marketable degree from a university with an outstanding track record for student employability.
Our innovative degree programmes, cutting-edge research and central London location ensure that we are one of the most distinctive sociology departments in the UK.
