The College has long-standing strengths in sociology, geography, demography, criminology, women’s and gender studies.
Globally, our research canvasses themes such as international development, environmental governance, human rights and inequality. Locally and nationally, Flinders scholars address pressing issues such as domestic violence, abortion reform, social division and environmental degradation.
Sociologists at Flinders address issues pertaining to the increasing complexity of everyday lives. They extend theoretical and applied knowledge across the themes of non-normative constructions of relationships, gender and sexuality, the sociology of work and political sociology.
Human geography and development studies, too, are Social Science disciplines in which Flinders continues to contribute ground-breaking research with demonstrable impact in the developing world.
Opportunities are available in the Social Sciences in the following disciplines:
- Geography (2)
- Sociology/Women’s and Gender Studies (2)
