What is our Departmental Intent?:

It is the intention of the Sociology curriculum to:

analyse critically the nature and sources of information and to base reasoned judgements and arguments on evidence,

organise and communicate their knowledge and understanding in different and creative ways, and reach substantiated judgements,

appreciate the significance of theoretical and conceptual issues in sociological debate,

understand and evaluate sociological methodology and a range of research methods through active involvement in the research process,

develop skills that enable individuals to focus on their personal identity, roles and responsibilities within society,

develop a lifelong interest in social issues.
