Admission to the Masters in Sociology will require a good first degree in Sociology, (at least lower second class Honours) or the equivalent qualification of another degree with a Diploma in Sociology (at least a B average). The Applicant's first degree should be from an approved university.
It is expected that applicants will already possess adequate exposure at the undergraduate level to sociological theory and social research methodology before entering the programme. Where there are deficits in these areas, it may be possible to remedy this by the assignment of departmental requirements, but this will be determined on the basis of each applicant's record.
Where students do not possess the undergraduate foundation for their selected area of specialisation, they will be required to take these courses as departmental requirements.
