Welcome to a leading national and international Department of Sociology, including our innovative Centre for the Study of Politics.

In a time of crisis and uncertainty, we search for an understanding of the world around us - in our teaching, research, and public engagement. We offer a vibrant social and intellectual community that is networked into other departments and institutions at Maynooth University and the community of sociology and politics scholars worldwide.
