About Sociology, Gender and Social Work

kitePeople are our focus

We specialise in teaching and research on what makes societies, contemporary and historical social issues, the influence of gender in our work and leisure, ways of working with people, and advancing knowledge about children and families.

In our programmes you can study how people organise in groups or societies and social change, examine how gender impacts on our lives and shapes what we do, or complete a professional programme in the field of social work and enable positive change in people’s lives.

In each of the programmes you’ll be introduced to new perspectives on things you’ve always taken for granted.
