Undergraduate Courses

All of our undergraduate degrees in the School of Sociology and Social Policy explore how societies work, and what can be done when they don't.

We offer a wide range of optional modules, including choices from other disciplines, and a flexible system which allows you to tailor your degree to your own interests and career aspirations.

Studying at Nottingham enables you to develop a global perspective of your chosen subject and there are also opportunities to study abroad at partner institutions in locations such as Australia, China, Germany and the USA.

The school has excellent teaching and learning facilities, including a dedicated student common room and you will be assigned a personal tutor for the whole of your course, who will help guide your studies during your time at Nottingham.
