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.
