If you want to develop your sociology knowledge and learn a language, this is the course for you.
Studying Sociology helps you to think critically about the social worlds we live in. At Sussex, you’re taught by expert researchers on such diverse topics as gender inequalities, identity, health care and globalisation.
Designing and carrying out your own research projects means that you develop practical and analytical skills of research methodology.
Choose one language from Arabic, British Sign Language, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese or Spanish.
