Sociology MA

Course Description

Course Overview

Our Sociology MA equips you with an awareness and understanding of the theoretical traditions and concepts that shape Sociology as a discipline. A dissertation and a variety of taught options provide you with an in-depth opportunity to engage with key sociological issues and approaches.

Sociology at Newcastle has a solid track record of excellence in research-grounded postgraduate studies.

This course gives you an understanding of the philosophical principles that underpin social inquiry and also equips you with the ability to integrate material across a range of disciplines.

You will also gain: knowledge in key areas of sociology including identity, citizenship, social transformation, social inequalities, sexuality, health and others; an understanding of the variety of philosophical principles and epistemological frameworks that underpin approaches to social inquiry; an understanding of the way social divisions are generated as structures of power and patterns of inequality, and how these are reproduced and transformed over time.
