About

This is a potential research degree area, subject to the approval of the Abertay University. If you are interested in undertaking a research degree in Sociology, please make contact with the Dean to discuss your proposal.

Overview

The Sociology research programme from Abertay University will prepare you for a rewarding career as an academic and researcher, as well as opening up opportunities for a diverse range of careers outside of academia, for example, in formulating policy.

Sociology’s postgraduate culture centres on students completing an MA by Research; MPhil or PhD. 

As an Abertay researcher, you will collaborate across disciplines with colleagues from other divisions. We have been a key partner in a number of large European grants specifically examining the interaction between technology, society and social innovation, as well as exploring social network dynamics for collective awareness.

Division staff have supervised a wide range of projects some of which have entailed partnership with non-academic user groups in the domains of:

Policy sociology – health, education, youth, environment, influencing public policy, communities and professional practice.

Criminal justice – influencing policing and criminal justice stakeholders.

Media, arts and cultural industries – centring on digital design processes, media educationalists, artists and curators.

Collaborations exist with criminal justice and policing researchers through the inter-university Scottish Institute for Policing Research (SIPR), the Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance (SICSA), and with media educationalists through the Association for Media Education in Scotland (AMES).

Programme Structure

What does a research degree involve? 

  • As a postgraduate research student, you will carry out an original, independent research and/or practice-based project, whilst being guided and supported by a team of expert academic supervisors. 
  • As you do this, you will benefit from an extensive programme of researcher development tailored to your background, needs and future ambitions. This will in turn help you develop the skills required to deliver research excellence.
