MA VISUAL SOCIOLOGY: Fee bursaries available

Two fee bursaries available for new MA at Goldsmiths -


Exploring sociological issues through inventive methods

Drawing on Goldsmiths´ strengths in Visual Sociology, critical social analysis and experimental approaches in Science and Technology Studies, this programme is designed for students who are interested in new ways of exploring and understanding the social world through the use of visual, sensory and other inventive methods.

The MA in Visual Sociology provides an introduction to the range of debates in visual and sensory sociology, encouraging you to build on these by using visual and sensory methodological practices to carry out critical social research in your areas of interest, such as contemporary capitalism, `race´ and ethnicity, postcolonialism, gender and sexual cultures, human rights, biotechnology, globalisation or other aspects of social life.

The programme combines lectures and seminars with practical sessions and workshop-based projects in which you develop a hands-on approach to sociological research, providing a skills base in methods that could be used in public sector contexts, art/media research, design or commercial settings.

The MA in Visual Sociology will start in September 2013. It is offered by the Department of Sociology at Goldsmiths, University of London.
