**Summary**: What social forces shape our everyday lives? How can we understand, explain and link local, national and global societies? What factors shape our opinions on and attitudes to social issues, society in general and other people?**Course details**: The study of sociology at Teesside University is framed in the local with a global focus, giving a grounded context of modern life. It addresses historical and contemporary issues and investigates topics such as work, social diversities, social inequalities, leisure and youth, and social exclusion. This degree encourages you to think critically about the world in which you live. An understanding of people and their interactions equips you to explore our lives and our experiences, and ask whether governments and social policies can improve the lives of ordinary people. As well as acquiring a good foundation of knowledge of sociological theories, you can specialise in areas as diverse as globalisation, gender, social media and social policy in context. Many of the skills you gain as a sociologist are valued by employers, and the vocationally orientated modules on offer enable you to explain, analyse and intervene within contemporary social and political issues.**After the course**: Expect opportunities in the public sector, journalism, social research, community development, non-governmental organisations and postgraduate study or training. All programmes are designed to incorporate employability skills development alongside your degree course. Our staff utilise their extensive connections to provide many and varied opportunities to engage with potential employers through fairs, guest lecture sessions, live projects and site visits. In addition we offer a series of workshops and events in the first, second and third year that ensure all students are equipped with both degree level subject knowledge PLUS the practical skills that employers are looking for in new graduate recruits. Our award winning careers service works with regional and national employers to advertise graduate positions, in addition to providing post-graduation support for all Teesside University alumni.
There might be a part-time course available for this subject, we are waiting for data from our partner UCAS.
