OVERVIEW | ADMISSIONS & PROCEDURES
Our PhD programme in Sociology, with a specialization in social justice, responds to current social changes in workplace restructuring, the declining welfare state, privatization, processes of globalization, gender relations, sexuality, governance, security, and migration and immigration practices and policies.
It offers resources for analyzing the social, cultural, and political implications of these many changes, and examines how various groups challenge existing forms of marginalization and social injustice.
With innovative course offerings, and faculty engaged in diverse research projects on issues of social justice, our programme provides a unique opportunity to pursue research on critical issues of our era. It is primarily designed for students who are interested in pursuing academic, research, and social policy careers. Students have the opportunity to specialize in many diverse fields of study, and the programme is accompanied by a grounding in social theories and proficiency in a wide range of research methods.
