Sociology at Macquarie
Sociology at Macquarie is an expanding and lively place that covers broad fields of sociological research. Still, it’s important there’s a good fit between the research interests of applicants and sponsors. For this reason, potential applicants are strongly encouraged to look over the research profiles of potential sponsors from within Sociology. These profiles can be found
here.
