Sociology at UNE

Why Study Sociology at UNE?

The Sociology Discipline at UNE is the second longest established in Australia. We are a diverse and dedicated group of researchers and teachers. The range of our interests enables us to cover a broad spectrum in our teaching.

In research, we have particular strengths – reflected both in research grants and international publications –

  • the sociology of health and social policy
    (e.g. drug use and policies, public policy in the Global South)
  • sexualities
  • comparative and development sociology
  • the sociology of consumption
  • social theory
  • political sociology
