This programme gives you the opportunity to extend your core sociological knowledge and understanding. It will also consolidate familiarity with the discipline for those with a background in a related subject, but without specialised knowledge of sociology.
The key learning goals are to develop critical use and comprehension of social theory, gain a grounding in methodologies and techniques of enquiry, and focus on distinctive, substantive sociological topics, such as ethnicity, multiculturalism, gender, sexuality, religion and culture.
The dissertation gives you the opportunity to pursue a sociological project of your choice in greater depth, while still providing close academic supervision.
The MSc programme comprises six 12-week taught units and six assessed essays, followed by a dissertation.
You may choose four units from the list of sociology options. Options vary each year but may include:
You will also study a maximum of one unit from the remaining optional units that are offered by the School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies in the academic year.
