Politics and Sociology BA Hons
Lancaster’s Politics and Sociology degree is taught by academic staff from the departments of Politics, Philosophy and Religion and Sociology. You’ll be supported in developing a wide-ranging understanding of how political ideas and institutions shape the way societies are organized and have the opportunity to relate your interest in social and cultural themes to real-world political events and current affairs.
In your first year, you’ll follow the core Politics in the Modern World and Introduction to Sociology modules. You’ll increasingly specialize, with second-year subjects including Politics of Development and Global Changes; Public Policy; Understanding Social Thought, and Research Skills and Techniques. Your final year options cover topics such as Africa and Global Politics; Islamic Politics; Contemporary Issues in the Middle East, The Chinese Century; Terror; and Doing Sociological Research.
