Social Research Methods
Social researchers employ a constantly evolving range of qualitative and quantitative methods to explore attitudes and experiences, and to understand patterns of social behaviour. This programme won't just train you in the application of specific research techniques: it will illuminate the connections between sociological theory and empirical research, and relate research to the development of public policy and the analysis of substantive social issues. Wider issues of the social research process are also covered and include: the planning and management of research projects; the methodological, theoretical, philosophical and ethical aspects of research; and the presentation and publication of research findings.
Example modules listing: Data analysis; documentary analysis and online research; field methods; principle of survey design; research: from design to dissemination; evaluation research; statistical modelling; theory and method; dissertation.
Assessment methods include a dissertation.
