This MRes allows you to carry out a closely supervised research project in a range of exciting and challenging social sciences fields. The course is underpinned by core modules in research skills, supported by modules aligned to your chosen discipline pathway in Arts, Design, English Literature, History, Social Science or Media. You'll develop an advanced and critical knowledge of methodological approaches to social science research and the theoretical foundations underlying them, an advanced and critical understanding of ethical debates in relation to social science research and an advanced knowledge of IT and its relevance for social science research. You'll be supported and supervised by researchers who are widely published and working at the cutting edge of their field. The course is a great preparation route for a PhD and it also offers advanced, transferrable skills that are highly sought after by employers.
Your tutors will use a variety of teaching methods, which may include lectures, seminars, problem-based workshops, case discussions, practical activities, group work and tutorials. Teaching is backed up by a well-designed support system that will underpin your learning journey. You will have access to a Guidance Tutor with whom you can discuss any academic issues. Extensive feedback from both tutors and peers is built into the course.
