A sociology degree will prepare students to analyse the multiple layers of our social world–with all its pitfalls and promises–and apply that knowledge to guide our society to a better future.

Gender Studies

We address the ways gender, sexuality and identity are created, experienced and transformed in all areas of private and public life.


Criminology focuses on the critical study of crime and victimisation, theories of crime causation and prevention, the criminal justice system and the responses of the broader community to crime.
