University of Kent
School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research
MA - Political Sociology
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 programme combines the perspectives of sociology and political science to address key issues of social and political change in modern societies. It examines the interaction between, and interdependence among, social and political institutions, processes and action, especially collective action. The MA is distinctive in its focus on social and political movements, protest, and the less conventional and less institutionalised forms of political action and participation. It also gives particular opportunities to study environmental politics and globalisation, and to choose from the wide range of optional modules in Sociology, Social Policy and Politics and International Relations.
