The School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research (SSPSSR) has a long and distinguished history.
It is one of the largest and most successful social science research communities in Europe.
It has received top ratings in Research Assessment Exercises, and most recently had 70% of its work judged as either ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent” in terms of its “originality, significance and rigour”.
The MA in Sociology invites you to think systematically about the social world and how it is changing. The programme provides a comprehensive overview of the foundational concerns and current debates in sociology, and offers a range of options for exploring applications in specific areas of research. You learn about current theoretical tools and develop skills in research and data analysis, which can be used in a range of professional fields. The programme is also an excellent basis for pursuing further research in sociology or more specialised or applied subjects
