MSc in Social and Spatial Analysis (GEOT40)
Updated information for September 2013 entry now available!
Have you ever wondered where your life could have taken you if you were born somewhere else, on a different street, in a different town or in a different country? Where you are born is out of your control, but this chance occurrence of whether you were born into wealth or poverty, chance or misfortune is likely to have a bigger impact on your life than any other single event.
The MSc in Social and Spatial Analysis gives you the opportunity to understand the reasons why, and the effects of being born in the right or wrong place. Studying with us will help you develop the skills to unpick the data, make the maps and ask the questions that could change our world from one of chance and division to one of equality and opportunity.
We welcome applicants from all backgrounds, whether you want a career change or simply want to continue your education; if you are enthusiastic, want to learn and take part we would be delighted to welcome you to Sheffield to study with us.
