Sociology

This programme gives you the opportunity to extend your core sociological knowledge and understanding. It will also strengthen familiarity with the discipline for students whose background is in a related subject, but do not have specialist knowledge of sociology. The key learning goals are to develop critical use and comprehension of social theory, gain a grounding in methodologies and techniques of enquiry, and focus on distinctive, substantive sociological topics, such as ethnicity, multiculturalism, gender, sexuality, religion and culture. The dissertation gives you the opportunity to pursue a sociological project of your choice in greater depth, while still providing close academic supervision.

Course modules

Students on this programme will take a combination of mandatory and optional taught units within the School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies. Each unit is delivered over the course of 12 weeks and assessed by an essay (or equivalent form of written submission). The taught section of the programme is followed in the summer term by a dissertation. Visit our programme catalogue for full details of the structure and unit content for our MSc in Sociology.
