Sociology MPhil


Course Description

Course overview

Our research expertise centres around three themes: Identities, the Sociology of Health and Life Sciences and Social Transformations. Our research tradition covers sociology, social policy and social anthropology. We have strengths in the fields of family studies, health studies, political economy, sexuality, citizenship, and youth and student lives.

Our MPhil and PhD projects cover a wide spectrum of contemporary sociology including: bodies, identities and experiences; culture and material life; 'development' and the global south; emotions and intimacy; environment and society; imagining pasts and futures; sexualities and gender; sociology of ethics; sociologies of health and life sciences; sociology of law; visual and aesthetic cultures.

Each of these themes represents the expertise of a member of staff actively engaged in sociological research.

Most of our research students are based in the School of Geography, Politics and Sociology, with some based in the Policy, Ethics and Life Sciences (PEALS) Research Centre.
