NEW for 2015: MSc Inequalities and Social Science
We are delighted to be introducing a new, interdisciplinary MSc programme in 2015: The MSc Inequalities and Social Science. As a result of dramatic economic and social changes over recent years, the study of inequality has rapidly developed as one of the most important areas of inter-disciplinary social scientific study. This programme offers a comprehensive and wide ranging programme which includes expertise from leading academics in the Departments of Sociology, Anthropology, Economics, Geography, Government, Law, Social Policy, Media and Communications, Gender, and Statistics, and will provide students with state of the art teaching in this area. For more information about the programme and how to apply follow the link from the contents panel (left).
