Masters Degrees in Political Sociology

We have 179 Masters Degrees in Political Sociology

Masters degrees in Political Sociology involve advanced study of the relationship between government and society, along with the ways in which power and identity affect one another. As you’d expect, they combine political and sociological theory to shed light on the politics of contemporary society. Depending on the programme, you can study these Masters in the form of an MA or an MSc. Related postgraduate specialisms include Social Policy and Political Sciences.

Why study a Masters in Political Sociology?

## By applying sociological concepts and techniques to the study of politics, you’ll develop your knowledge of the interactions between social and political institutions. You might study the influence of protest movements on government, assessing the extent to which social change comes about as a result of collective action. Some courses may give you the chance to focus on a particular region or country – the Balkans or Russia, perhaps – while other programmes might instead turn your attention to the effects of globalisation on political institutions. In terms of career prospects, the most obvious destinations for postgraduates are probably in local and central government, charities, diplomacy, policy-making and non-governmental organisations (NGOs). However, you’ll pick up a range of skills that can be applied across sectors as diverse as the media, management and industry.
