This programme enables students to gain added value from taught, subject-based modules. These allow students to broaden and deepen their subject knowledge at the same time as undertaking their own research and developing a set of transferable professional skills in preparation for a variety of careers.
An excellent undergraduate degree with evidence of research ability; or undergraduate and postgraduate degrees which are not necessarily in fields directly related to the intended area of research. Besides formal qualifications, a key factor determining whether the Department decides to accept a candidate is the quality of his or her research proposal and its relevance to our own interests. Successful completion of a research thesis demands a high level of self-discipline, motivation and commitment to the subject of research. Great importance is placed on work experience, when relevant. We accept a range of qualifications from different countries. You can satisfy our English language requirements in 2 ways: by holding an English language qualification to the right level or by taking and successfully completing one of our English courses for international students.
Introduction to social science research; research design; social research methods I; social research methods II; optional modules.
