Graduate Studies in Sociology




Welcome


Welcome to the postgraduate studies programme in Sociology – to those returning to UCC, to those joining us from other institutions, and to those making enquiries for future years. Listed below is some key information about Sociology, our programme, staff interests and research projects, and the programmes/seminars offered in the coming year (2011-2012)


The Discipline of Sociology in the School of Sociology & Philosophy


Sociology at University College Cork is one of two disciplines in the School of Sociology & Philosophy. We have a successful and popular undergraduate programme, with large student numbers.


Sociology has a very strong postgraduate programme, offering Master’s and Ph.D. degrees for over twenty-five years. We offer a flexible, structured, modularized credit-based graduate research education programme that is inter-disciplinary, inter-institutional and international. Several of our graduates are now distinguished sociologists in their own right teaching at third level colleges in Ireland and elsewhere in the world; others are involved in full-time social research; and others are engaged in careers where a postgraduate sociological training is an integral aspect of their work. Some of our graduates, particularly from the Masters programme, have entered fields (for example, in fields like teaching, journalism, human resources, the civil service, social services, community work and broadcasting). where their postgraduate training is a valuable backup. We typically have 20-25 postgraduate students enrolled in the Masters our postgraduate programme, which includes (1) an MA in Sociology; (2) an MA/M.Soc.Sc. in the Sociology of Development and Globalisation. As well, the modular and credit based structure of our postgraduate programme enables students to undertake interdisciplinary postgraduate degrees: (a) within the School of Sociology & Philosophy we offer joint MA & PhD degrees in Philosophy & Sociology, and (b) in collaboration with the School of Applied Social Studies and the Department of Government, we offer a PhD Social Science (GREP). We also offer two international summer schools for postgraduate students in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (i) Theory & Philosophy Summer School www.tapss.ie and International Political Anthropology Summer School www.ipa3.org Social Science.


Sociology has research interests in a wide range of areas, enabling it to teach a diverse programme and, along with its central contribution to the BA undergraduate programme at UCC, to participate in many co-operative ventures (including the B.Soc.Sc, BSW, BComm, BBS/DBS, MBA, Film Studies MA, MPlan, Women's Studies MA, Public Policy, Nursing, and Medical Ethics). Its commitment to interdisciplinary work also emerges in its successful visitors’ Seminar Series, which is open to the wider UCC community and to the public.


In particular, Sociology at UCC is recognised for its outstanding research and publications record (see staff interests and achievements below). For example, four members of staff have been awarded the UCC Arts Faculty Research Achievement Award. In a recent Research Quality Review conducted by an independent panel of international reviewers Sociology scored 4.5 out of a possible 5, one of only two disciplines at UCC to achieve this score, and the Review placed us amongst the top 15 sociology departments in the UK and the US! Staff in Sociology have published extensively in their specialist fields and their work has been widely reviewed both in the national and international arenas. In addition, Sociology is currently conducting research projects - funded by the EU, the IRCHSS, Royal Irish Academy, PRTLI, the EPA and other research bodies. These research projects have generated doctoral and postdoctoral positions for researchers in recent years and we are highly committed to expanding the research capacity of Sociology. Some members of staff are regular contributors to the media, and our work is regularly reviewed or referred to in the media.


Sociology has extensive research contacts with colleagues and institutions in the UK, Germany, France, Greece, Italy, Denmark, Spain, Hungary, Sweden, the Netherlands, Norway, Africa, the Middle East, India, Canada, Brazil and the USA. In its teaching and research Sociology seeks to further the unique contribution of the discipline both in the academy and in the wider public sphere. Along with providing training and expertise in the fields of social theory and research methodologies, Sociology is committed to offering challenging and quality courses that are relevant to the most pressing issues in contemporary societies – such as, global development, social inequality, environmentalism, health and well being, gender, race and ethnicity, multiculturalism, media and communication, cultural change, nationalism and community.

Its members for 2010-2011 are: Chair: Dr. Niamh Hourigan, Members: Kieran Keohane, Pat O’Mahony, and Dr. Gerard Mullally. Ongoing administration is carried out by this Committee.
