"What first attracted me to the Sociology Department of Glasgow University was its excellent Masters programme, taught by important figures of contemporary sociological and social theory and the support, encouragement and help of the staff. The Masters programme… provided the ideal intellectual environment and the scientific tools for my subsequent PhD research."
