Our Research

With our long and respected tradition in both teaching and research, the Department of Sociology at the University of Leicester is the perfect training ground for future thinkers. In joining our community you will work alongside staff who continue to provide internationally renowned research in a diverse range of fields. Members of our staff carry out research funded by government, research councils, charities, industrial and educational organisations, and others; as well as regularly publishing research papers, books, edited volumes and, in recent years, some of the most widely-used textbooks in both general and specialist fields of sociology.
