Modules

This module will equip students with a comprehensive understanding of research methods enabling them to select the appropriate research design for an original research project. Students will study key philosophical questions as to the nature of science and knowledge to develop a reflexive approach to research. Students will learn the appropriate approaches to the management of ethical dilemmas within research. Students will develop a critical awareness of the principles and practice of qualitative and quantitative approaches and techniques before focusing on the in-depth study of methods used within their chosen field of research. Students will be guided on the development of their research proposal that will form the foundation of their dissertation, and supported in their dissertation research by a series of e-workshops targeted at key stages in the dissertation. In addition, students are invited to attend the Sport Science Seminars Series to frame their understanding of current sport-related research.
