Two Taught MA options in Sociology

Friday, July 7, 2017 - 10:30

Thinking of doing an MA?

MAs are of one year duration and include a research thesis which is submitted during the summer. Candidates take six modules and write a dissertation under the supervision of a designated supervisor. The 90 credits for the M.A. are made up of 60 credits awarded for taught modules and 30 credits for the dissertation. Some modules are compulsory. 

The Sociology Department have two different taught MA progammes on offer in 2017/18. If you are interested in pursuing your interests in Sociology please contact the named contact point for more details.

1) MA Sociology: Societies in Transition [MHY54] - Contact: Prof Honor Fagan.

2) MA Sociology: Internet and Society [MHY56] - Contact Dr. Aphra Kerr 

We also contribute to other MAs including in 2017/18 the new MA in Philosophy, Politics and Economics. 

More detail on each of our MAs can be found at​


We accept applications for taught MAs until August so please check PAC. 

All applications should be made through the  PAC system. 

Students with a high second class honours degree in Sociology or a related discipline will be considered. In certain cases we will call applicants for interview.
