Help support the Department of Sociology

The University's excellence in teaching and research has been helped by a long history of generosity from friends and supporters.

There are a number of ways in which you can support the Department of Sociology, not just financial commitments. We rely on your generosity to maintain our teaching and research excellence, providing students with outstanding opportunities for learning and developing.


One of the pressing issues on the minds of many of our students is their career path once they have graduated from University. If you feel that you could help our current students by providing a careers talk, an internship or work experience, or offer careers advice, please complete the form and we will be in touch shortly.

“Thank you and everyone involved who made this possible, I think it is a great system to keep the community together.”

Özgecan Atasoy is a member of our Alumni who is involved with our mentoring scheme this year.

Contribute to a Research Theme

Our research is focused around the following research themes:

    We are always looking for industrial and academic partners to collaborate with to enhance our research and teaching experiences. If you feel that you or your organisation could offer support (financially or otherwise) in one or more of these areas, please do not hesitate to contact the relevant staff member.


    We always welcome any financial donations you can offer to improve the research and teaching experience we offer. You can contribute directly to the Department of Sociology or support Cambridge students through an online donation to Student Financial Support.


    A gift to Cambridge in your Will could help Sociology flourish far into the future. For many people, a gift in their Will is a good way to make a significant and lasting contribution. It may cost nothing in their lifetime, yet provide much satisfaction and peace of mind in prospect. The Development and Alumni Relations office can advise you on making gifts in your will and on planning how best to support Sociology through your estate.
