The Department of Sociology is the ideal place for those who wish to undertake their own sociological research. We are ranked 1st in the UK for research quality by the Times Higher Education's ranking of the Research Excellence Framework 2014. 

Introduction

In addition to the Department's taught course route, it is also possible for students to undertake their MA in Sociology by Research Dissertation. Students taking this route would be expected to undertake a rigorous piece of independent research working closely with their supervisor (meeting at least twice per term).

Departmental areas of expertise

Supervision can be drawn from the Department's expanding range of expertise in:

  • Criminology,
  • Conversation Analysis
  • Social Media
  • Sociology of Health and the Body
  • Science and Technology Studies
  • Gender
  • Anomalous Experience
  • Culture and Consumption

Although this is not a taught course students do have the option of taking modules and research methods training where appropriate, although this is not compulsory.

The thesis

The 25,000 word thesis must be completed within a 12 month period (Full time) and demonstrate good evidence of the candidate's ability to critically investigate a specific field of study, using solid and appropriate research methodology, written to a high standard of presentation.

Application procedures

If you wish to apply for an MA in Sociology by Research you can apply online and send all your documentation electronically. It is possible to save your application half way through the process and come back to it at a later stage.
