We are one of the oldest and biggest Sociology departments in London, and our central location gives you direct access to the learning and cultural resources of a global city.

A wide range of employers recognise the skills a Sociology-based degree can give you:

  • a deeper theoretical understanding the complexities of our rapidly changing society
  • how data can inform decision making and the interconnectivity of all the elements that make up a society, such as culture, communications, politics, workers' rights, equality, crime.
Meet Hasna, a third year Sociology student who shares her views on studying at City, University of London and her hopes for the future.
