It’s a very great pleasure to welcome you to UEA and to your Sociology degree programme. We are all looking forward to working with you, and ensuring you have all the support you need to make the most of your time studying with us.
The distinctive thing about UEA’s approach to Sociology is that we emphasise interdisciplinarity and practical, real-world applications. The programme is based in the School of Social Work, but you will be part of a learning community spanning the School of Education, the School of International Development, the School of Law, and the School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies, as well as the School of Social Work. We think it’s a very exciting course!
We know that this year, 2020-21, will be different from a usual university year because of the steps we, and all universities, have had to take to prevent the spread of Covid-19. But you will still have access to the same great lecturers, great teaching, learning resources, university services, clubs and societies and chances to make friends. Well done and thank you for your decision to come to UEA, I am sure you will enjoy it!
I wish you well with your studies and very much look forward to meeting you.
