Sociology - unit set code MJ-A000019

Sociology is the study of society and social relations. Thinking sociologically allows the individual to step outside the taken for granted processes of everyday living towards examining the processes which create, maintain and change social groups in society.
On successful completion of the Sociology major sequence, students should have the following discipline-specific skills:

  • an ability to explain key sociological concepts such as socialisation, modernity, postmodernity, gender, social class, race and ethnicity; an ability to identify core theoretical understandings in sociology
  • an ability to apply sociological analysis to a range of contemporary issues such as health, family life, deviance and the media
  • an ability to understand conflict, cohesion and social change in societies
  • an ability to explain the systems, practices and technologies of control and their historical transformation in Western cultures
  • an ability to recognise the impact of social policy on social life
  • an ability to critically assess the work of other social researchers.
