School of Sociology and Social Policy

Our research-led teaching at year two

Below you will find videos of the current optional modules available at year two in the School of Sociology and Social Policy.

The videos are designed to give you a flavour of the module, the content of which is often developed on the basis of staff research and expertise. As such, they will share their passion for their subjects, create intrigue and inspire you to undertake your own independent research within a supportive atmosphere.

For current students: If you are consulting this page during a module choice period, please make sure that you read the Module Enrolment Xerte very carefully to see full details of all modules available and ensure that you are meeting the requirements of your degree programme in the choices you make.
