BSc Sociology with Law
About the course
This degree provides you with an opportunity to investigate and analyse specific examples of law, social theories, aspects of social action, social processes and institutions. It will enable you to understand these in the context of your own society and to compare different types of social life and societies. It will give you an opportunity to examine theories about the nature of social existence and change and to study these in relation to the State and the legal framework. The approach will be broadly theoretical but you will develop your analytical skills in both law and sociology.
