Together with active researchers you will be encouraged to challenge established wisdom while studying the intellectual canon of the discipline.

This means that we pay special attention to the interests and goals of our post-graduate students who wish to pursue their studies here. Drawing on our vibrant and developing research culture we offer an inter-disciplinary, contemporary and relevant degree programme, drawing expertise from our interest in current sociological trends in Britain, Europe and globally. Studying for a Masters in Sociology is guaranteed to be an intellectually interesting experience, challenging assumptions on questions from race and culture to exclusion and austerity. The Masters is a way of becoming a participant in sociological debate and analysis, whilst being supported in gaining an in-depth and critical understanding of the traditions and latest developments of the discipline.
