PhD in Women and Gender Studies

Warwick Sociology has 30 members of academic staff with wide-ranging theoretical, methodological and substantive research interests. Experts in their field, our academics welcome enquiries from potential PhD students with an idea for a research project.

We offer two research degrees at PhD Level: the PhD in Sociology and the PhD in Women and Gender Studies.

The PhD in Sociology reflects the multi-disciplinary strengths of our staff including social and cultural research, from traditional sociology and social theory to contemporary cultural and media studies.

The PhD in Women and Gender Studies, meanwhile, is primarily concerned with analysing how different bases of inequality and identity, such as race, gender and class, intersect with each other.
