Race and Ethnicity in British Sociology

About the Report

This report is concerned with the place of race and ethnicity in the teaching of British Sociology. More specifically, the report examines the place of race and ethnicity in undergraduate Sociology degree courses and considers the issues and barriers to the teaching of race and ethnicity.

The report draws upon data from Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA), a thematic analysis of Sociology degree programmes and related modules, and an online survey completed by 188 respondents (which equates to 9.5% of all Sociology staff employed on teaching and research contracts in 2017/2018).
