The Department of Sociology at the University of Surrey has an international reputation as a centre of excellence in both research and teaching. It is one of only six sociology departments in the UK to have obtained the highest possible rating of 5** in the 2001 Research Assessment Exercise, and has a vibrant and thriving research culture with strengths in a number of fields, brought together under our four research groupings and underpinned by methodological innovation and rigour. The research groupings are: Age, Generation and Everyday Life; Criminology and Criminal Justice; Culture and Identity; Developments in Methodology, and Science, Environment and Technologies. The Department also has expertise in ageing and gender, and sleep, along with new developments in social simulation, and Access Grid Nodes as a data collection tool for social research.
