University of Sheffield Sociology Society
Welcome from the President
"Welcome to the University of Sheffield Sociology Society. SocSoc is run by a student elected committee to both welcome you to the Department, and to support you through your time here at Sheffield. We are the most social and best society in the University; we strive in providing a friendly, inclusive and informative support service for anyone who is part of the department.
I have no doubt that myself, the committee and the rest of the society will do everything we can to make sure you settle in, enjoy and flourish while being part of the University of Sheffield family."
- Cameron Baker, SocSoc President 2017/18
So what does SocSoc offer?
To support you throughout your studies our Academic Rep organizes extra-curricular support and help for first and second year students. Throughout the year the society will provide members with the chance to be part of group revision sessions, career events and the student lead seminar series; which allows students to run their own seminars on topics they have a passion for.
