Course Structure & Content
Over the four years, students take courses in general social science disciplines, such as economics and political science, and specialist courses in areas such as family, gender, crime, poverty and inequality. The first two years are more general and foundational in nature, while the latter two years are more focused on specialist courses in sociology and social policy.
Teaching and assessment
Teaching takes place in lectures, seminars, and project groups. Assessment methods vary according to subject and course; both examination and continuous assessment are used.
