About the course

This pathway provides students with the opportunity to study the major themes and debates of Political and Economic Sociology at an advanced level. This pathway aims to integrate the consideration of political and economic debates with the study of substantive topics, as well as give a thorough grounding in research methods. There are three elements to the pathway:

1. There are eight two-hour sessions covering some of the major theoretical contributions to the study of the Political and Economic Sociology and some key substantive topics. The substantive topics vary from year to year depending on staff availability. Other substantive modules may also have an economic sociology component, and these would complement the core modules well.
