Our MA in Sociology gives you a thorough grounding in the theories and methodologies of Sociology and allied Social Sciences, while allowing you room to explore specialist aspects of the discipline.

Core modules introduce the exciting research taking place in the Department and beyond. You can then choose to explore a particular specialist area in more depth (e.g. human-animal interactions, global power
relationships, religion and politics, work and employment, or food and education policies) or continue to access the breadth of ideas and approaches offered by the subject.

You will develop a detailed understanding of a range of traditional and cutting-edge social research methods, and will learn to apply this knowledge in an independent research project that forms the basis of your dissertation.

This degree prepares you for work in a range of careers that value analytical ability, the capacity to link theoretical sophistication to empirical research, and the skill of communicating complex ideas to a range of audiences. Our postgraduates have gone on to pursue employment in teaching, media, accountancy, recruitment and human resources, working within private, public and charitable sectors.

In this video Hannah Jones, Assistant Professor of Sociology, discusses our MA Sociology.
