We have 299 Masters Degrees in Applied Sociology

Masters degrees in Applied Sociology are about using sociological principles and concepts to address everyday issues and problems. This normally means that these courses take a more practical approach than their ‘pure’ Sociology counterparts.

Programmes are usually a Master of Arts (MA) or a Master of Science (MSc), but there are also opportunities to complete an MRes in Applied Sociology. Related subjects include Criminology and Social Research Methods.

Why study a Masters in Applied Sociology?

If you study a Masters in Applied Sociology, you’ll learn how to make sociological ideas work in the ‘real world’, so to speak. Rather than focusing on theory and abstract concepts, you might concentrate instead on a certain social institution, issue or relationship.

Criminology is a common component of many Applied Sociology courses, with students typically studying crime, punishment and justice through a sociological lens. Other areas in which you might apply sociological principles include the environment, global inequality and urban policy.

A Masters in Applied Sociology could lead to employment in many sectors, such as government (local and central), political think-tanks and non-governmental organisations (NGO).
