Course summary

Our Sociology and Social Research MA provides specialist research training. The course provides high-quality research training to enhance key skills and employability. The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) recognise it as offering the requisite skills training for preparation for a PhD.

Sociology at Newcastle has a solid track record of excellence in research-grounded postgraduate studies.

Throughout the course you will gain:

an appreciation of the theoretical traditions that influence and shape sociology as a discipline
an awareness of the philosophical principles and epistemological frameworks that underpin all social enquiry
an understanding of social divisions as structures of power and inequality
an understanding of the profound transformations in contemporary society and the implications of this for understanding collective and individual agency
a strong practical grounding in a range of research methods and awareness of the epistemological consequences of methodological issues and choices

Many of our graduates go on to study funded PhDs, others have pursued careers in:

the corporate and financial sectors
international and national non-governmental organisations
regulatory bodies such as environmental agencies.

As a core component of the ESRC North East Doctoral Training Centre, our UK and European students benefit from the support of the most prestigious funding scheme in the country.
