What to expect

Course lecturer Janet Hughes talks about the College of West Anglia's History and Sociology degree.

Both history and sociology are fascinating subjects. By studying both at University Centre West Anglia (UcWA), you'll develop an understanding of past societies and patterns of social change.

A sociology degree helps to frame and understand contemporary debates around race, gender and social divisions. Including the history element of the degree allows for a much deeper analysis – examining issues from an historical, sociological and biographical standpoint.
