Lancaster's Masters degree in Sociology pushes at the frontiers of current social analysis while trying to enhance the intellectual traditions of sociology.
Lancaster has been inspired by the challenge of inter-disciplinarity and the possibilities this furnishes for redefining and reinvigorating the sociological tradition. The content of the current degree programme reflects this, with courses drawing expertise not only from cutting edge-Sociology, but also from the Centre for Gender & Women's Studies, the Centre for Science Studies, and the Centre for the Study of Environmental Change. Drawing on our highly-rated research culture, we integrate relevant and exciting new work in anthropology,
media & cultural studies,
Our MA degree in Sociology also draws its inspiration from the perplexing and ever-changing world of the 21st century. We will give you the analytical tools and research skills to answer questions such as these:
The MA in Sociology is a forum for joining in the argument, while being assured of a broader critical awareness of recent developments within the discipline. This is your chance to take part in debating the future not only of contemporary sociology, but also of contemporary society and the world we will leave to future generations.
The degree is composed of six modules (each comprising 20 credits or 11% of the total mark) and a dissertation (60 credits - 33%). Two of the modules are compulsory and four are chosen from a range of options. See core and optional modules.
