Undergraduate Study in Sociology

Sociology at Newcastle

Sociology involves the study of the social processes that shape people’s lives around the world.

At Newcastle we closely integrate the study of two allied social sciences:

  • sociology
  • social anthropology

You can read an overview of the subject area and get an idea of the diverse range of modules on offer at these links:

Sociology BA Honours (L300)
Politics and Sociology BA Honours (LL32)

You can also take our subjects, geography, politics and sociology as part of a degree in Combined Honours:

Combined Honours BA Honours (Y001)

Our students are part of a lively, diverse academic community at the heart of a fantastic, cosmopolitan city.

For first-hand accounts of life as a Newcastle Sociology student, you can read the profiles of some of our current students as well the feature "a day in the life".

You can also find out more about the diverse range of projects our students undertake for their third year dissertations and read about a recent success story.

Our staff are dedicated teachers and their current research feeds directly into the modules they teach. This means that you gain a thorough grounding in the study of social life and social theory, brought to life with material from cutting-edge research.
