cambridge university sociology
The Sociology course in Cambridge gives you the opportunity to study the ways that our world is changing today, from Britain, Europe and the United States to China and Brazil, from the global financial crisis to the impact of new technologies and the changing nature of personal relationships. It explores the multiple forms of power and inequality in the world today and how they affect the lives of all of us. By joining together the social, cultural, political and economic dimensions of social life, Sociology gives you the tools you need to understand the key events of our time and how they are linked to the main forces and institutions that shape the modern world.
