BA Honours in Sociology & Social Anthropology Saved

5 October 16

You saved BA Sociology and BA Social Anthropology!

This morning Senate approved plans to retain BA Sociology and BA Social Anthropology following a huge student and staff campaign to oppose the closure of both courses, marking the conclusion of QUBSU’s ‘Save Our Schools’ campaign. The historic and tremendously effective coming together of staff and students to retain these courses, which are immensely valuable to both students and society, marks the beginning of a broader and more ambitious campaign alliance between QUBSU, UCU and others which seeks to assert Queen’s as a public University shaped by, and run in the interests of, students and staff. This is a victory for the thousands of students and hundreds of staff who backed our grassroots campaign – you have shown how meaningful and positive change can be achieved at our institution.
