Course Description

Course Overview

Our Sociology and Social Research MA provides specialist research training. The course provides high-quality research training to enhance key skills and employability. The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) recognise it as offering the requisite skills training for preparation for a PhD.

Throughout the course you will gain: an appreciation of the theoretical traditions that influence and shape sociology as a discipline; an awareness of the philosophical principles and epistemological frameworks that underpin all social enquiry; an understanding of social divisions as structures of power and inequality; an understanding of the profound transformations in contemporary society and the implications of this for understanding collective and individual agency; a strong practical grounding in a range of research methods and awareness of the epistemological consequences of methodological issues and choices.
