Sociology is an intreiging yet complex subject which looks at the different aspects of relationships, institutions, disabilities and many other areas of the surrounding world. I have throughly enjoyed studying sociology, and highly recommend the subject to students who have an interest in how the world functions.

The lecturers for this module were extra supportive, and not just for module stuff either. The assignment was well written (requirements were listed so we knew how best to get the marks). Taxation is complex, but the module was structured well so that we could see how each bit came together.

The module content has been interesting. Being a complicated subject, it is taught in a way which is understandable by giving step by step instructions as well as continued support.

Incredibly mismanaged, no agreement between supervisors and the module leader, constant miscommunication, no support material for a long time. Poor feedback from supervisors and complaints about this was ignored. We had to have several meetings with the whole course to try and correct the errors they made. Honestly an embarrassment to the university.

The Modernism and Modernity module is a 30 credit module available in the third year. The module consists of a two hour workshop each week. During the workshop a presentation with a general introduction and key points would be given to introduce a particular piece of literature followed by some group activities to get people talking. The teaching on this module was incredibly dynamic and each week was different which kept the content interesting. It is a great module as you have the opportunity to study novels, magazines and poetry.

This module has been the most challenging as it coincides with a maths exam and another exam 2 weeks later, whilst juggling with practice placements it's a struggle!The support received varies: the lectures surrounding this module are not very helpful and recap what is taught first year rather than level 6 contentPersonal supervisors are helpful however so make as much use as possible with them!

The Unity and Diversity in Contemporary America module is an in-depth analysis of modern issues in American politics and society, like health care, race relations, LGBT rights and income inequality. The lecturer, Dr. Clodagh Harrington, is obviously incredibly well-read in the topic and communicates this very well in her lectures and seminars. It is not excessively complex, although this module is offered to History students also, who have told me that it differs in style from their other modules in terms of essay-writing. Assessment is by an essay (30%), seminar participation including two group presentations (30%), and an essay (40%). This has been by far my favourite module of second year.

Management Accounting is my favourite module on the Accounting and Finance course at De Montfort University. I like how it involves a mixture of different skills - it has some elements of writing within assignments and elements of maths through calculations. I've always loved maths and was a bit worried about doing accounting at university, but I think this module gives me the balance I wanted. It can be challenging at times, but through the tutorials I feel like I have learned a lot. Besides, you wouldn't want it to be easy (because then it can get boring!). The lectures are very well structured and I like that we get handouts of the powerpoints to make notes on. Also, in tutorials there are lots of examples to do and help is always there if needed. For this module, we had one individual assignment, one group assignment and one end of year exam.

The Unity and Diversity in Contemporary America module is a politics module offered to History students (as well as, of course, politics students). It appears to be a popular choice among them but it is not structured like a History module which appears to be an item of consternation among some of them.

In terms of content, the module covers contemporary American issues like healthcare, race relations, gay rights and income inequality, and invites us in seminars to present on these topics. The seminars serve to reinforce the content learned in lectures, and 30% of the module mark is seminar participation, with another 30% on a January essay and 40% on a May exam.

This module is probably one of my favourite modules, this is due to the fact i get to learn about all different aspects of psychology including cognitive, social, development, personality, international perspectives and biological. I find the biological aspect of the module the most difficult however I still really enjoy it. The assessments in this module consist of multiple choice exams, a portfolio relating to skills and essays.
