Disability Studies (Inclusive Theory and Research)
This research programme will equip you with the skills, knowledge and ability to plan and carry out academic research relevant to disability studies, with a particular emphasis on people with learning (intellectual) disabilities. Students will gain a particular awareness and skill set associated with emancipatory and participatory models of research, where disabled people themselves take active roles in the research process. Parts of the programme are delivered by, or co-taught with, disabled people. You will take core units about research design, quantitative methods and qualitative methods, plus an additional core unit about inclusive research with disabled people. The optional units will give you a chance to consider research about inclusion for people with learning disabilities and other disabled people in health, in social care and policy, and in education.
A relevant upper 2nd Class Honours degree (or equivalent qualification demonstrated through experience in the field), and a demonstrated ability to study at postgraduate level.
Core modules: philosophy and research design in the social sciences; introduction to quantitative research methods in the social sciences; introduction to qualitative research methods in the social sciences; inclusive research with disabled people; dissertation; plus optional units; personalisation in practice; citizenship and participation; social inclusion; including students' voices.
