We are one of the oldest and most well-established Sociology Departments in London, with a long-tradition of engagement with public policy around important social issues.
Our students receive a first-class education that is consistently informed by cutting-edge research and delivered by internationally recognised leaders in their fields.
Our range of courses teach students about the local and global forces which define our lives. They involve a mixture of hands-on and theoretical learning which help students develop the sociological imagination, knowledge and research skills to engage with the key challenges and debates that are shaping policy formation and professional practice in a rapidly changing world.
City’s location in the heart of one of the world’s great cities provides a stimulating real-world environment in which to explore issues including criminology and criminal justice, class, gender, ethnicity, migration, and the sociology of race and racism.
We have particular expertise in quantitative sociology (including survey methods and data analysis), enabling students to develop highly sought-after data literacy and quantitative skills.
At the end of their studies, our students graduate with a highly marketable degree from an institution with an outstanding track record for student employability.
