Course Summary

Overview

This programme provides practical, career-orientated training in social science research methods, including research design, data collection and data analysis relating to both qualitative and quantitative modes of inquiry.

Students will have the opportunity to specialise in particular methodologies and to learn more about the application of these methodologies to illuminate important issues and debates in contemporary society.

The MRes is designed to develop critical understanding of contemporary issues for both those interested in developing academic and research oriented careers and those who are interested in improving their research skills and critical understanding for practical employment-orientated careers.
