Sociology at Canterbury Christ Church University asks challenging questions about the ways in which social life is organised, structured and experienced. Our degree encourages you to reflect on how individual activities, relationships, beliefs and identity are shaped by society, and how individuals, in turn, produce and change the social world. We strive to develop your sociological imagination, to ensure that you achieve your full academic potential, to enhance your career prospects, and to encourage critically active citizenship.


We place our students at the heart of everything we do and we are committed to enabling you to achieve your full potential.
