Sociology at Leicester

Welcome to Sociology at Leicester.

We were one of the very first universities to teach sociology in the UK and we have a long and well-respected tradition both in teaching and research. There are few branches of the discipline in which it has not had some influence.

Our Courses

Our aim is to continue our outstanding record by engaging in sociological research in a wide range of topics.


The induction time-table for first year (2016/2017) undergraduate students is now available. Click here to download it. First-year undergraduates should check their University email account for further information.
