Course content

Students will develop a range of conceptual, analytical and methodological skills that will enable them to identify, describe and analyse a wide range of social phenomena, drawing on advanced knowledge of current debates, problems and issues at the forefront of sociology.

Teaching, learning and assessment are structured around critical engagement with sociological topics. Students are encouraged to be active participants in seminar discussions and presentations, and to enhance their critical reading, thinking and writing skills.

Students also develop their independent research skills through an individually supervised thesis based on a substantive topic aligned to their interests, needs and goals.  

The School of Sociology offers both a MA and MSc in Sociology. Both programmes share many modules and are equal contributors to the close-knit community of scholars in the School of Sociology. The core difference is the additional methodological breadth of the MSc in that students graduate trained in both quantitative and qualitative approaches to sociological inquiry. The MA offers qualitative training and an additional optional module in place of the quantitative requirement found in the MSc.
