Sociology MA (Distance Learning)


Course Description

The MA Sociology by distance learning is a perfectly balanced programme of study that examines how sociologists make sense of the social world and the human condition.

The course considers sociology to be the systematic study of forms of social organisation and patterns within social life. The course explores the relevance of theory and philosophy for thinking sociologically. It also considers the range of methods employed for engaging in sociological research.

We will provide you with a supportive and intellectually exciting study environment that is responsive to your individual needs. In addition, we aim to encourage the development of critical skills, including argument, analysis, theoretical exposition and description, precision, and good methodological skills that enable the development of confidence and professionalism in relation to both your work and other students. We also aim to prepare you for either further academic work or for other careers where the general skills acquired will be of invaluable benefit.

You will also have the chance to study the award from a variety of perspectives and to develop your own interests in the area.

The award is delivered via the Blackboard virtual learning environment, which allows you the flexibility to arrange your studies around work and family commitments.
