Course Summary

This course provides excellent preparation for social science doctoral study or for research careers in the public or private sectors. It fulfils the pre-requisite for studying a PhD at UWE Bristol through the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) South West Doctoral Training Partnership (SWDTP) on the Health and Wellbeing pathway. Gain an in-depth understanding of conducting social research, and use your skills to carry out your own research study on this specially designed MRes Social Research course. Policy-making, planning and management across society and the economy needs to be underpinned by robust social scientific evidence. Focusing on the 'societal challenge' - how to promote public health and wellbeing - this MRes Social Research will give you the skills to critically evaluate existing evidence and conduct your own social research project with an interdisciplinary framing.

If you're joining this course with the aim of undertaking a PhD, the MRes Social Research is a prerequisite for the South West Doctoral Training Partnership's 1+3 route. This course is also relevant for graduates seeking to build a research career - and provides an excellent foundation for research positions in both the public and private sectors. You may go on to work on research in organisations such as the NHS, local government or the Office for National Statistics. Others may decide to stay in academia, and take on a research or teaching position.
