Department of sociology

Sociology at Oxford has a strong analytical, empirical and comparative orientation. Our focus is on developing and testing theories that engage with real world puzzles and problems. Particular strengths include innovative, theory-based data collection and analytical methods, and focuses on crime, violence and governance, demography and health, political sociology, and social stratification.
