Masters Degrees in Social Theory

We have 238 Masters Degrees in Social Theory

Masters degrees in Social Theory examine the ways in which sociological thought can be used to explain human behaviour and relationships. Unsurprisingly, these courses have a particularly theoretical focus compared to other kind of Sociology Masters, concentrating on the work of certain thinkers and schools of thought. Similar postgraduate specialisms include Social & Cultural Theory, Social & Political Theory, Social Policy and Social Research Methods.

Why study a Masters in Social Theory?

## Social Theory is a broad and complex field, and a Masters in this area will allow you to address a range of different theoretical frameworks and methodologies. Typical subjects include postmodernism, poststructuralism, feminism, Marxism and postcolonialism. You might look at the history and development of these movements, or explore how they relate to the events and issues that shape contemporary society. These usually culminate in a piece of independent research, consisting of a lengthy dissertation on a subject of your choice. The skills you gain through this project will be applicable in a range of careers, and employment destinations typically include the government, publishing and journalism. Alternatively, a Masters in Social Theory provides a great foundation for further study of the subject through a PhD.
