Social Research

This course offers advanced training in quantitative and qualitative methodologies for undertaking research in Sociology and allied Social Sciences. It also allows you ample scope to explore your own specialist academic interests. You'll gain advanced knowledge and understanding of the theoretical issues involved in conceptualising social research, and the political and ethical questions involved in undertaking research investigations. Through hands-on training in quantitative and qualitative methods, you will also develop the skills necessary to design, conduct, analyse and communicate your findings. Optional modules enable you to explore specialist fields and to apply this knowledge to the independent research project that forms your dissertation.
