Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

Build your interest in sociology and extend your knowledge in a dynamic research environment, with a strong focus on research training. We’ll enable you to advance your analytical and research skills while equipping you with the tools for confident, autonomous thinking, which are much-in-demand from employers.

The Department of Public Health, Policy and Social Sciences is home to a multi-disciplinary team of staff whose work reflects shared principles of promoting social justice, equality, and diversity as a basis for human well-being. Staff in the department are committed to conceptually sophisticated, and socially relevant research and scholarship, with expertise in a diverse array of theoretical traditions.

Our staff can offer supervision across a wide range of social science research themes and methods. We welcome both empirical and theoretical project proposals as well as opportunities for interdisciplinary research. The department plays a vital role in emerging and novel intellectual areas and addresses the widest range of trends, problems and dilemmas of a rapidly changing social world.

As a student at our College of Human and Health Sciences, you will benefit from a dynamic and supportive research environment with many opportunities to make connections across disciplines and develop links with organisations and policymakers both in the UK and abroad.

According to the most recent Research Excellence Framework in 2014-2021, over 75% of the research carried out at the college was of international or world-leading quality.

You will be joining a university that was named ‘University of the Year’ and ‘Postgraduate’ runner up in the What Uni Student Choice Awards 2019.
