Induction 2018

For new students joining our degrees in Criminology/Sociology and Sociology, we will hold an induction week from 17 September 2018. There will be plenty of opportunities to meet the tutors and other students during talks and informal sessions, and ask questions about any aspect of the courses. We will also embark on a fieldtrip in Liverpool Museum and Mersey Ferry, and enjoy a free lunch with views of Liverpool's famous waterfront.

"Studying sociology at LJMU has allowed me to explore new issues and themes that were inaccessible at A-Level. This was aided by the wide variety of modules and research opportunities offered. Some of these modules were centered on sport, religion and identities whilst research opportunities included visits to London and Belgium. The fieldtrips were my main highlights and have inspired me to embark on postgraduate study and consider going into academia to develop my sociological interests."
