This is a web-based course and is run on an open-learning basis. This allows you to study at times that suit you. The modules are flexible, so you can make choices based on your own personal interests. The programme will enable you to evaluate, design, conduct, analyse and justify educational and social research, in terms of: underlying conceptions of the person, social relations, education and research practice; first-order principles which define valid research problems and knowledge; political and social assumptions about the purpose of research and its relationship to constituencies of practice and policy; research strategies implied by different philosophical assumptions; techniques for engaging in knowledge-gathering from different social and educational settings and sources; techniques for analysing data of all types; methods of disseminating research outcomes and emergent issues; use of research for educational and social ends.
An undergraduate degree or equivalent.
