Social Science Research Methods (Politics)
This MSc provides Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC)-approved research training in politics and international relations. We aim to provide a thorough grounding in practical methodological skills through hands-on experience and the critical exploration of relevant examples and case studies. It is particularly suited to those seeking a career as a social science researcher or continuing to PhD level, including ESRC-funded doctoral study. The School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies promotes a close-knit student community with easy access to members of staff who all give a high priority to teaching and supervision while maintaining high-quality, high-volume research. The programme provides thorough theoretical and practical knowledge of the variety of qualitative and quantitative data collection methods available to the social scientist, and the main methods of data analysis. The programme also covers the research process, ethical considerations and social theory. You will be encouraged to apply your methods training to substantive research interests.
Students on this programme will take a combination of mandatory and optional taught units within the School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies. Each unit is delivered over the course of 12 weeks and assessed by an essay (or equivalent form of written submission). The taught section of the programme is followed in the summer term by a dissertation.
