Course content

There has recently been renewed policy and popular attention on social inequalities during what is widely recognised as a period of intense social and political transformation globally.

The social sciences have an important role to play in mapping and understanding how inequalities arise and in tackling their causes and consequences. This programme unites academic expertise in the School of Sociology and Social Policy - linking also to the university-wide Inequalities Research Network – and harnesses leading analytical approaches combining qualitative, quantitative and data analytics (in close collaboration with the School of Geography).

This broad ranging programme draws on key strengths in intersectional analysis of racial, gendered and disability inequalities, linking to other urgent topics with regards to, for example, urbanisation and globalisation. It provides a stimulating intellectual environment and cutting edge methodological approaches to comparing and contrasting the formation and consequences of inequalities across a range of national and international contexts.
