Student Profile

“There are so many events for masters students at Warwick and in the Sociology department. I constantly get emails for events happening nearly every day, and many of them are really interesting. Events can range from sociology lunches, cake and tea meetings, to guest lectures with a reception at the end. They are great and give you a chance to meet new people. The sociology community is a bit like a big family.”

- Lea Linebaugh, MA Gender and International Development
