The Applied Sociology degree at Robert Gordon University will provide you with the skills to help yourself and others in life and in work.

Sociology explains why so much happens; from understanding criminal behaviour to how and why we consume the media we do. It includes issues of inequalities, injustices and how we can make sense of the society in which we live.

In your first two years you will study a range of social science modules. This introduction will be invaluable for exploring the real-world applications of sociology before you specialise in sociology alone. You will develop a series of transferable skills that you can apply in any working environment and in life generally.
