Hi! I'm on a gap year now and researching unis and courses for September 2014.I did Sociology at A Level and absolutely loved it and am strongly considering studying it at uni. My question is; is a sociology degree a waste of time? Where will it get me? I am looking at possibly pursing a career in law... but nothing set in stone yet! I want a broad degree that will give me a few options. I also have 280 UCAS points to play with (grades BBC) and am considering the university of Westminster & university of Greenwich (I'm from Belfast but want to study in London!) Any replies will be appreciated Thank you!!

Seriously! Omg :confused: That's not a good sign! Think I'd still like to go to the open day to see for myself though!

Yeah I'd thought of that! But do you think that if I do decide to become a legal professional, possible legal employers may look down on my degree since it isn't pure law??

I am currently studying BA (Hons) Sociology at Leeds Metropolitan University (I'm a 3rd year student) and I love it! I would recommend it as I believe that it does give you many options as its such a broad subject. I am hoping to do something in Media when I graduate and having a degree in Sociology helps. However, if you want to study Law I think you should apply for a Law degree. I don't think having a degree in Sociology is useful.

Hope this has helped you

I think sociology degree is really useful if you are really undecided on your career path you could head in any direction for example social justice, law, forensics or head into teaching.

You can do the gdl ( law conversion) after your sociology degree to go into law

It also depends on how much time you have on your hands and quick you want a degree and full time job. Really most employers etc don't mind if you have a combined degree in law
