Why study sociology?
This course is for students who are interested in how society works and why particular social events happen. Sociology is also considered good preparation and an acceptable entrance qualification for many courses at degree level.
Common career pathways taken by sociology graduates include journalism, law, PR, marketing, social research, politics, charity, development work, teaching, social work and nursing.
It is also a useful subject for those not wishing to go to university and wanting to follow careers such as the police, armed forces, civil service and working with children or the elderly.
