Sociology in Cambridge is taught within the context of the Human, Social and Political Sciences Tripos (HSPS), a framework spanning multiple social sciences disciplines, including Sociology, Politics and Social Anthropology.
We foster a lively graduate community in the Department, with a dedicated postgraduate study area, online forums, graduate methods training, and bespoke support available from academic and administrative staff.
Our research groups focus on academic study in Social Theory, Economic and Political Sociology, Media, Culture and New Technologies, Gender, Reproduction and Family Life, Public Health and Biomedicine.
The European Research Council has just announced the results of its 2016 Starting Grant funding competition and among the successful applicants is Dr Stuart Hogarth, the department's newly appointed Lecturer in Sociology of Science and Technology.
The Department of Sociology at the University of Cambridge is a world-leading centre for teaching and research in Sociology, consistently ranked first in UK league tables by The Guardian, The Times, and the Independent.
