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 (staff are subject to change).
There are opportunities for overseas fieldtrips***, study or placements abroad* (application and additional costs may apply). For example, in recent years, past 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 Berlin, Istanbul, Poland, Sarajevo Sicily and Gothenburg where past students have visited a number of significant social, cultural and political spaces such as the Reichstag Building in Berlin and the military airport of Boccadifalco.
***Excursions and events may be subject to competitive application, availability, meeting visa requirements and additional costs may apply.
