Sociology and politics courses

Our politics and sociology courses focus on contemporary national and international issues in health, education and the workplace. Our politics degree was ranked number 1 in the UK for satisfaction with the course in the 2019 Guardian University League Table.

Alongside your course, you’ll be able to take part in activities such as publishing and editing Politics Review Magazine, and joining the Model UN Simulation Society, the Politics Society, the Sociology Society and the Debating Society.

And you’ll have the opportunity to travel, whether it’s meeting policymakers in Brussels or spending a semester studying at one of our partner universities in the USA, Canada, Australia or mainland Europe.
