The Degree in Sociology provides students with the theoretical knowledge and practical tools necessary to analyse the characteristics of present-day societies in an objective and critical manner. In addition, this analytical skill will help them to develop social action strategies that improve the living conditions of the people in these societies (public policies, company dynamics, educational projects, analysis and statistics centres, etc).
One characteristic of this qualification is that it requires a multidisciplinary knowledge that covers different areas: economics, history, psychology, sociology, statistics, etc.
Remember that this degree has subjects that are related to statistical, descriptive and inferential analysis.
Students should have an empathetic inclination to understand the object of study.
You can attain a double degree by combining the Degree in Sociology and the Degree in Political and Public Administration Sciences, worth a total of 300 credits.
