Sociology is the study of humans in society - is at the heart of the roadmap towards a sustainable future. Each of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals has a sociological aspect, and understanding the social implications of world trade, economic growth, and climate change has never been more critical. Since the birth of the neoliberal era, major global transformations have redefined societies across the world, producing social unrest, increased wealth inequality, and new migration trends. Sociologists are now focusing on why the current organisation of society might itself be unsustainable, researching innovative solutions to develop social-environmental relationships that are less environmentally harmful. By studying this course, students will be combining sociological concepts including race, identity, ethnicity, and gender and applying these to your exploration of global issues such as wealth inequality, elite power, and food security. Students will consider these issues from many different perspectives, understand their complexity and learn to use a variety of approaches to think creatively about potential solutions.
