Postgraduate Studies in Sociology




Welcome


Welcome to the postgraduate studies programme in Sociology – to those returning to UCC, to those joining us from other institutions, and to those making enquiries for future years. Listed below is some key information about the Sociology Department, our programme, staff interests and research projects, and the programmes/seminars offered in the coming year (2005-2006).


The Department


The Department of Sociology at University College Cork is a compact, dynamic, and friendly community. There are ten permanent staff, and several part-time staff. We have a successful and popular undergraduate programme, with large student numbers.


The Department has offered Masters and Ph.D. degrees for over twenty-five years. Some of our graduates are now distinguished sociologists in their own right teaching at third level colleges in Ireland and elsewhere in the world; others are involved in full-time social research; and others are engaged in careers where a sociological training is an integral aspect of their work. Some of our graduates, particularly from the Masters programme, have entered fields (for example, teaching, journalism, human resources, the civil service, social services, community work and broadcasting) where their postgraduate training is a valuable backup. In the recent period we have typically had 25 postgraduate students enrolled in the Masters programme which includes (1) an MA in Sociology, which offers four specialist streams on the media and mass communications, contemporary Irish society, health, sustainable development and civilisation, and the public sphere; (2) an MA/M.Soc.Sc. in the Sociology of Development and Globalisation. A number of students are also registered on our M.Phil. and Ph.D. programme.


The Department has research interests in a wide range of areas, enabling it to teach a diverse programme and, along with its central contribution to the BA undergraduate programme at UCC, to participate in many co-operative ventures (including the B.Soc.Sc, BSW, BComm, BBS/DBS, MBA, Women's Studies MA, Public Policy, Nursing, and Medical Ethics). Its commitment to interdisciplinary work also emerges in its successful Departmental Seminar Series, which is open to all other Departments and to the public.


In particular, the Sociology Department at UCC is recognised for its outstanding research and publications record (see staff interests and achievements below). For example, four members of the Department have, in the last four years, been awarded the UCC Arts Faculty Research Achievement Award. Staff in the Department have published extensively in their specialist fields and their work has been widely reviewed both in the national and international arenas. In addition, the Department is currently conducting research projects - funded by the EU, the IRCHSS, Royal Irish Academy, PRTLI, the EPA and other research bodies - in a number of critical areas (including, Irish society, identity, ethnicity, gender, feminism, politics and social movements, health and environmental issues). These research projects have generated doctoral and postdoctoral positions for researchers in recent years and the department is highly committed to expanding the research capacity of the Department. While some members of the Department are regular contributors to the media, the work of those in the Department is also regularly reviewed or referred to in the media.


The Department has extensive research contacts with colleagues and institutions in the UK, Germany, France, Greece, Italy, Spain, Hungary, Sweden, the Netherlands, Norway, Africa, the Middle East, India, Canada, Brazil and the USA. In its teaching and research the Department seeks to further the unique contribution of Sociology both in the academy and in the wider public sphere. Along with providing training and expertise in the fields of social theory and research methodologies, the Department is committed to offering challenging and quality courses that are relevant to the most pressing issues in contemporary societies – such as, global development, social inequality, environmentalism, health and well being, gender, race and ethnicity, multiculturalism, media and communication, cultural change, nationalism and community.


Administration of the Postgraduate Programme


The postgraduate programme is administered by the Department’s Postgraduate Studies Committee. Its members for 2005-2006 are: Arpad Szakolczai (on leave from January 2006), Ger Mullally, Niamh Hourigan, Joe Ruane, Pat O’Mahony and Linda Connolly. Ongoing administration is carried out by two Coordinators - MA Sociology co-ordinator: Ger Mullally (+353-21-4902618; g.mullally@ucc.ie), MA Development and Globalisation co- ordinator: Niamh Hourigan (+353-21-4902904; n.hourigan@ucc.ie). For general queries contact: Eleanor O’Connor or Jerry O’Sullivan in the Departmental Office: +353-21-4902318


The first meeting of the MA and Ph.D. class of 2005-06 will be on Thursday 29th September at 3.15pm in the Sociology Annexe on Donovan’s Road.
