Welcome to Sociology at Keele

Sociology has been taught at Keele for over 50 years and we take pride in combining world-class research with lively and accessible teaching. We are strongly committed to providing an intellectually challenging and supportive space for students to learn and grow. Teaching is closely tied to our research interests. This means that you will be taught by enthusiastic staff who are closely involved in charting contemporary society and informing current sociological debate.

The Sociology programme is highly rated for both research and teaching. We are currently ranked in the top 16 Sociology Departments in the UK in the Complete University Guide and are very proud to have achieved a score of 98% for overall student satisfaction in the most recent National Student Survey. This result is reflected in what our students say about us.
