About us

Sociology NORTH is based at the University of Sunderland, just a stones throw away from our award winning beaches at Roker & Seaburn. Our campus sits on the banks of the river Wear, where between 1846 - 1854, a third of all ships in the UK were built. 

Despite the ravages of post-industrialisation, the city is currently undergoing a major transformation.  This will bring new job opportunities, sustainable homes, along with the Riverside Sunderland development, which will be the first carbon-neutral urban quarter in the UK! 

We are proud of our city, we love our campus by the sea & we love our beaches in any weather!

Sociology NORTH was cofounded by Sociology students & staff, who are passionate about Sociology and who want to see social change.
