Overview

The  Sociology MPhil/PhD programme from The University of Exeter students have a range of interests that cut across themes in sociology (including criminology), philosophy, anthropology and anthrozoology. We support postgraduate students working across a diverse range of topics in these disciplines and at their boundaries. Our department includes Egenis, the Centre for the Study of Life Sciences, an internationally recognised research centre for philosophical and social studies of the life sciences.  

Research culture:

As a postgraduate student in the Department of Sociology, Philosophy and Anthropology, (SPA) you will be able to pursue your work within a friendly and informal atmosphere.

We pride ourselves on providing an environment for students that will expose you to a wide range of intellectual influences and exciting ideas. 

PhD students are also part of the wider College of Social Sciences and International Studies research community and have opportunity to meet with students and staff from other disciplines.

Our research culture is characterised by our commitment to foster thinking and analysis that crosses over traditional academic boundaries (such as between philosophy-sociology-anthropology as well as social sciences-life sciences).  The research culture for postgraduate students reflects this spirit.
