Students will explore a wide variety of topics including: The role of software in everyday life; Programming with Python and Java; Key ethical and social issues in digital societies; Data visualisation; Theories of social stratification; Race, class and gender; Sociological research methods; Natural language engineering. With research methods rapidly changing in response to the large-scale generation of data within society, sociology needs to ensure it is engaged with new digital methods to both benefit from them, and to shape them. Sociologists with programming skills are highly valued in any organisation that must gather and draw inferences from data.
