Social Research Methods (Sociology)
If you are interested in studying for a research degree in the social sciences, or want to learn about research methods, you might want to consider our innovative MSc in Social Research Methods, run by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Doctoral Training Centre. If you want to study for a PhD, and are seeking ESRC funding, you will be required to take this or one of our other ESRC-recognised research-training Masters degrees, unless you have already achieved a similar level of research training at a university elsewhere. At the end of your 1st year, you graduate with a Masters degree before proceeding to the PhD (this is called 1+3 study). In the fields of economics, psychology and science, technology and innovation, our specialist Masters degrees are recognised by the ESRC as providing research training suitable for 1+3 study. All the other social sciences at Sussex offer research training through the MSc in social research methods. This is for students in the fields of anthropology, contemporary European studies, development studies, education, gender studies, human geography, international relations, politics, law, migration studies, social work and social care, and sociology. The degree is specifically designed to provide research training for those intending to move directly to doctoral study. It can also be taken as a stand-alone 1 year degree by those who wish to apply advanced research methodologies to an area of academic or policy interest without continuing to a doctorate.
