Entry requirements

You’re normally expected to have a Masters degree and an upper second-class (2.1) undergraduate honours degree.

Your qualification should be in sociology or a related subject area but you may still be considered for the degree if you have a qualification in a different subject area. In certain circumstances, you may also be considered for the degree if you have other relevant professional qualifications or relevant research experience of equivalent standing.

Course content

Sociology at Sussex is an exciting place to pursue critical research in sociology, criminology and interdisciplinary fields relating to:

  • childhood and education
  • crime and violence
  • gender
  • health and care
  • migration.

We are an active, research-intensive department whose work on questions about sexuality, identity, ageing, policing and hate crime is influencing public and policy debates worldwide.

We have reviewed all our courses to ensure the best possible learning experience for September, taking account of latest information and advice in relation to COVID-19. For updates on changes that may affect contact time, assessments, fieldwork and study abroad, check Course changes for 2020-2021. These changes are not yet reflected our online prospectus information and, of course, may be revised as the situation evolves.
