Students in Sociology at King`s learn about all facets of the human condition from leaders in their fields in small class settings as they discuss the linkages between individual experiences with the wider society. Our students develop a range of analytic, computer and communication skills that enhance their employability while simultaneously developing an enriched understanding of the social, cultural and historical forces that have helped shape the modern world. Students will learn to appreciate the tension between individual agency and the social forces at play that constrain how human beings behave in all spheres of life. Such learning creates skills communicators, researchers, and analysts who can enter the working world as imaginative thinkers with concrete technical abilities writing expertise, and critical thinking skills that are vital to being successful professionals.
