What Do Social Scientists Do? Sociology
This Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) resource gives information about careers related to sociology. It starts with a definition, explaining the ways in which sociologists study the effects of social issues and the way society is organised. The resource then lists career possibilities for sociologists using their analytical and critical thinking skills, and their sympathetic approach to people's needs. It also gives information about societies and ESRC-funded research centres (note that links within individual pdf files may no longer work but the organisations listed may be found using an external search).
ESRC is a part of Research Councils UK (RCUK).
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
