Course content

This programme examines equality and human rights in a social context, empirically and theoretically, while also providing advanced training in sociology and social science research methodology to fulfill Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC) postgraduate research training requirements.

  • You will examine key debates and theories concerning equality and human rights and how they have influenced social policy and practice, develop a critical understanding of sociology and gain skills in quantitative and qualitative research methods.
  • You are taught research methods by expert staff from many disciplines within the College of Social Sciences. This means you benefit from a range of specialist knowledge and methodology.
  • This degree is taught jointly with the MSc in Equality and Human Rights. It has a stronger focus on the subject, with less emphasis on research methods.
