SAGE Campus Training

SAGE Campus is an online platform offering a series of courses for sociologists. Developed in collaboration with social science experts and organisations, each course is designed to provide concrete, practical skills that can be applied to real-life sociological research.

SAGE Campus supports the teaching and learning of skills and research methods through user friendly structured online learning. The style is self-paced and instructor-led, comprised of an engaging mix of quality content, video, interactives and formative assessments. The flexible learning pathways cover tricky skills and research methods that can be applied across all stages of academic study; from undergraduates looking to critically assess information to researchers looking to report and publish their data.
