Course summary

This degree provides an opportunity to develop your own research expertise by studying a sociological issue in an interdisciplinary school. You will study with internationally renowned sociologists in a dynamic and supportive research environment. They are involved in funded research, research centres and groups looking at everything from digital economies and futures, food security, and integration, to music festivals, migration, modern slavery and social inequalities. Our staff also have particular expertise across a range of cultural and social theory and champion diverse research methodologies. You will join an international community of students working in a range of sociological areas.

We are committed to rigorous conceptual and empirical research that is politically and socially relevant and problem-orientated. We aim to advance theory, knowledge and methods at the cutting edge of Sociology. Our aim is not just to monitor the social world but to contribute to a better understanding and to ways that might improve it. Most students will start in September 2024 or January 2025, however other dates can be considered. Please contact the postgraduate student administrator to discuss the options available.
