Program Description

The MA Sociology programme provides a broad range of cutting-edge analytical and research skills to better understand significant social issues and problems in contemporary society, and how to act to change them.

The MA in Sociology offers students unique theoretical training to understand our social world.  The MA focuses on qualitative and theoretical approaches to sociology.  Students can enrol as either full-time (one-year) or part-time (two-year).  As a member of a tight-knit community in the School of sociology, students benefit from a wide variety of optional modules availing of the unique substantive and methodological faculty expertise.  Covering topics ranging from nationalism to migration to violence to social networks, the MSc in Sociology culminates with the completion of a comprehensive research project benefitting from individual supervision and the time/space to apply a year’s worth of training.  Professionally or as part of a longer academic pathway, students in the MSc graduate with unique theoretical competency offering the ability to build upon a rich sociological tradition.

The School of Sociology offers both a MA and MSc in Sociology.  Both programmes share many modules and are equal contributors to the close-knit community of scholars in the School of Sociology.  The core difference is the additional methodological breadth of the MSc in that student's graduate trained in both quantitative and qualitative approaches to sociological inquiry.  The MA offers qualitative training and an additional optional module in place of the quantitative requirement found in the MSc.
