We are uniquely placed within the fast growing UCL Department of Social Science, consolidating research and teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, including the new BSc in Social Sciences and a suite of Masters in the fields of Sociology and Social Policy.

· Youth, young adults and identity 
· The life-course and transitions to adulthood
· Migration
· Sociology of religion and culture  
· Social class and social mobility

· Families, children, intergenerational relationships and parenting 
· Fatherhood and family policies 
· Love and intimacy 
· Health inequalities 

SSTRG aims to forge links with sociologists with different research interests both within UCL and beyond.
