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, scoring well in the recent Research Assessment Exercise and Teaching Quality Assessment. We are currently ranked in the top 16 Sociology Departments in the UK in the Complete University Guide. This is reflected in what our students say about us.

The Sociology staff at Keele are amazing!

They are very interested in their students and are always available for feedback, support, and advice
