Sociology provides distinct insights into the contested character of contemporary processes of global, national and local transformations, and how these transformations are driven by and reflected in the complexity of individual identities and allegiances. The MA Sociology programme has a strong theoretical core, which critically examines the major sociological traditions as tools for understanding contemporary social transformations. We will take these traditions and combine them with cutting edge theoretical frames to explain social phenomenon that are reshaping our societies, such as: the rise of new technologies and social media; the rise of new forms of populist politics; widening socio economic inequalities; increasing forms of individualisation.
