One of the main features of this course is its international focus. Our lecturers come from across the world and have expertise in international issues, global development and comparative sociology.
There are opportunities for overseas fieldtrips, study or placements abroad (application and additional costs may apply). For example, in recent years, students have studied on a range of sociology related and non-directly sociology related courses at universities in Sweden, Spain, Italy and the Netherlands.
Our Study Trip module provides further opportunities for international experiences and has previously facilitated visits to Krakow, Berlin, Istanbul, Poland, Sarajevo and Gothenburg where students have visited a number of significant social, cultural and political spaces such as Auschwitz and the military airport of Boccadifalco.
For those students who are not engaged in any of the above activities, we also run an International Week, where, among various events and activities, you can hear from international speakers and view international films.
