Course summary

Overview

The School of Social Sciences has an exceptionally strong and interdisciplinary research culture, and offers expert supervision across a wide range of research topics. Our PhD programme is characterised by a strong focus on research training leading to theoretically-informed research that advances academic and policy debates. The School of Social Sciences has the following research themes that represent the School’s main areas of expertise. There is also the opportunity for interdisciplinary research. We are committed to theoretically informed research with a clear policy focus; and offer research opportunities for postgraduate study in sociology, social policy, criminology, science and technology studies, social work and education (see full list below). We welcome students who wish to pursue their studies in an interdisciplinary way. We collaborate with major universities and international agencies around the world, as well as with local policy makers and practitioners. Our research environment includes a wide range of active research groupings, seminar series, and informal study groups. Our PGR Café - a student-led initiative - provides a unique intellectual forum and support network for those pursuing doctoral studies. University, academic and research; transferable skills allow for the development of career paths in any field requiring: clear and logical thinking; detailed reporting of empirical findings; advanced and critical analysis of complex data; the design and conduct of independent research; communication skills, both written and oral; the ability to identify and inquire into complex problems; the application and development of models and theory as these relate to human and social life.
