In the Gender, Sexuality and Society Master’s programme, you will examine differences in groups of men, groups of women, and differences between these groups. This will be placed in a broader perspective of social identities, political power and processes of exclusion and inclusion.

It is generally accepted that differences between rich and poor, young and old, between skin colours, or between Christians and Muslims are undeniable factors in people’s lives. Functioning as a woman or a man, with particular sexual orientations, holds comparable significance. Gender, Sexuality and Society is devoted to enhancing our understanding of the differences among groups of women and groups of men, as well as between women and men. In an era of globalisation and transnational migration, we see that new sexual acts and practices emerge within the fragmenting cultural landscapes of gender, sex, class and nationality. ... [-]

The Master’s programme in Cultural Sociology examines how popular culture and the globalisation of media poses threats to national and local cultures. You will also learn how to research culture in a broad perspective, as well as its specific aspects.

Would you like to know whether the global exchange of media products – Disney movies, fashion magazines, popular music – poses a threat to local and national cultures? Or whether developing art markets in Russia, China, Brazil and India adopt Western models and institutions?

In Cultural Sociology, you will not only examine culture from a broad perspective (collective mentalities, ideologies, religious orientations, expert and lay knowledge), but you will also look at the more specific features of culture (art, media, popular culture). You will focus on how symbolic goods like books, artworks and fashion are produced, distributed and received. In addition, the curriculum explores how broader cultural conceptions are embedded in social relations, and how they change over time and vary across social groups.... [-]

The MSc in Comparative Organisation and Labour Studies covers the sociological and interdisciplinary understanding of employment relations, the organisation of work processes and the position of labour in the wider society.

The programme in Comparative Organisation and Labour Studies has two distinctive features: (i) a strong focus on comparative analysis of issues concerning labour and organisation; and (ii) a special emphasis on processes of integration and convergence in world markets of both employment relations and organisational policies.

The programme

The programme offers a sociological approach to the study of modern capitalism by investigating cross-national differences within the institutional framework of market economies. It contributes to an understanding of the changing world of labour market institutions ranging from work-place practice, across union-employer bargaining to national welfare states and European social policies. Such institutions are fundamental to the wealth, power and patterns of inequality in the global economy. The programme also explores the institutional, cultural, social, and historical determinants of economic behaviour by looking at issues such as the regulations and norms in the labour market, informal norms in firms, and the effect of institutional path dependency on social capital, trust and networks....
