If you are curious about people and society then sociology is the course for you. Sociology provides you with a comprehensive understanding of the rapidly changing nature of contemporary society. With core themes such as migration, race and gender, conflict studies, digitalisation, identities and employment studies, you will gain a critical global perspective on a variety of social issues. There are a number of degree possibilities at Trinity with students having the option to combine the study of sociology with another subject, or subjects, depending on their interests.

Philosophy, Political Science, Economics and Sociology (TR015)

Brings together some of the most important approaches to understanding the social and human world, developing skills relevant to a wide range of future careers and activities. There is a gradual specialisation over the course of the degree with students ultimately having the option to just study sociology or to combine with philosophy, political science or economics.

"Studying sociology has given me analytical and critical thinking skills that have stood to me in diverse positions thereafter, whether as a political intern in Sierra Leone, as a Masters student at the College of Europe or in my current role working in international development in Egypt." -- PPES Graduate

It is a uniquely flexible programme where, after a common first year, students can adjust their course options to reflect their academic strengths, interests and emerging career aspirations.

"I came to Trinity planning to study economics, however I found the senior freshman modules in sociology so fascinating that I decided to change to single honours sociology." -- BESS Graduate
