Social Research in Education

This programme offers a focused study of research methods applicable to educational settings and educational enquiry. The programme develops an in-depth understanding of research methods, research design and the cultural and ethical contexts in which educational research takes place. The programme provides intensive training in social research methods and approaches. It aims to equip students with advanced qualitative and quantitative research skills, which support them in developing towards careers in research or as senior professionals able to support others in research endeavours, for example in schools. Research design is a focus, enabling students to select appropriate approaches and methods to carry out investigations. It provides students with the opportunity to develop intellectual and practical skills along with the ability to analyse and communicate complex ideas, and creatively plan and manage an independent postgraduate research project in education. It also equips students with the necessary skills to undertake further doctoral study. Students may choose to target a particular aspect of educational practice for data collection. However, assignments analyse data collection methods, analysis approaches or ethical aspects of the research rather than the content of the practice.
