Department of Sociology Specialities
The Department specialties include: social theory, criminology, environmental sociology, social inequality, sociology of gender, sexuality, development, work, culture and health, including occupational health, political sociology and maritime sociology.
Independent work is emphasized, so applicants must demonstrate maturity, self-motivation and the ability to complete a substantial piece of individual work. Rigorous core courses in theory and methodologies are offered, and individual student needs and interests are addressed through elective courses.
Graduate courses are taught as tutorials or small seminars. (Responsibilities of both graduate students and supervisors are outlined by the School of Graduate Studies.)
