BA Sociology with integrated Foundation Year, at Aberystwyth University, will train you to develop a critical awareness of and engagement with the social world. By studying this course, you will develop a thorough grounding in the conceptual and theoretical approaches that have been employed by sociologists to study the world around us. You will also develop your ability to analyse social phenomena through training in the collection, analysis and presentation of sociological data.

The integrated foundation year - designed for prospective students who do not have a sufficient or relevant academic background - is the perfect option to access this highly-sort scheme. In the Foundation Year, you will be brought up to speed on the fundamentals of Sociology, providing a solid base for you to go on and enjoy the full undergraduate degree.

Some of the distinctive aspects of Aberystwyth’s approach to Sociology include: 

  • emphasising the value and significance of a field-based approach to Sociology, with field exercises being integrated into lecture modules, and a dedicated Field-Based Sociology module;
  • integrating more applied perspectives into the teaching that we undertake on key themes and concepts in Sociology to demonstrate its real-world significance (and, in doing so, help with the employability of our Sociology graduates);
  • drawing on our research strengths and to ensure that students are exposed to cutting-edge theoretical and empirical understandings of the social world.
