PhD in Socio Economics

Socioeconomics is a field exploring the influence of economics on social processes (and vice versa). As its name suggests, socioeconomics is a high interdisciplinary subject – PhD candidates in the field will likely draw on theories from numerous areas of study during their course of their research. Work completed in this field can have a broad range of real-world applications in sectors ranging from education to social work.

What’s it like to study a PhD in Socio Economics?

You’ll work under the guidance of a specialist supervisor in your chosen topic to produce an extended dissertation that will make a substantial contribution to the field of Socioeconomics.

Possible research areas include:

  • Social stratification
  • Occupation and social mobility
  • Migration
  • Welfare and social security
  • Economic inequality and social justice
  • Labour markets and employment
  • It is likely that most of your research will involve working with secondary data – the original aspect of your work will largely involve considering the interaction between Sociology and Economics. However, you may also collect primary data using methodologies such as surveys, interviews, participant observation and longitudinal studies, depending in your line of enquiry.

    There are a small number of predesigned PhDs in the field of Socioeconomics, but most students will propose their own research idea. This means you’ll be responsible for deciding on your own objectives and methodology.

    Alongside independent research you’ll likely have the opportunity to share your ideas with the wider academic community at conferences, teach undergraduate students and submit work for publication.

PhD in Socio Economics entry requirements

The most common entry requirement for PhD programmes in Gender Studies is an upper second-class Bachelors degree and a Masters degree at Merit level, both in a relevant discipline. Some programmes may set a 2:1 undergraduate degree alone as a minimum requirement, but bear in mind that applications are considered on a case-by-case basis and additional qualifications with often be an advantage.

PhD in Socio Economics funding options

The UK Research Council responsible for funding PhDs in Socioeconomics is the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). It provides fully funded studentships that include coverage of your tuition fees, along with a stipend to cover living expenses.

Many advertised PhDs will have studentships attached. Students proposing their own research project may be able to apply for a studentship after being accepted onto the programme. If you are already working within the field, you may be able to get funding from your employer.

Options for independently financing your PhD include the UK government’s doctoral loan, part-time employment alongside your studies and support from charities or trusts.
