Sociology and Social Policy
This programme offers you advanced-level training in sociology and social policy. You will study sociological concepts, such as gender, class, inequality, interest, modernity, globalisation, and link them to social policy concepts, such as health, well-being, social welfare, social risk and the welfare state. Throughout, our perspective on these topics will be global; we use social theory and concepts to understand societies around the globe, comparing richer and poorer regions. All students will receive a thorough methods education, and if you want to specialise in methods you can choose our research methods pathway.
