MA Sociological Research
This degree provides a rigorous introduction to the key issues in social science methodology. It focuses on the epistemological and ontological questions that underpin sociological research and on the sociological theories that have shaped and continue to shape sociology as a discipline. Students will carry out ‘hands on’ training in selected research methods and skills, and will become skilled in the translation of sociologically-informed research questions into practical research design.
The degree is structured around required core modules: theoretical, philosophical and methodological modules offered within the Sociology Department; and modules on qualitative and quantitative research methods provided by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences Research Training Programme and by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. These modules will provide students with transferable skills in areas such as advanced philosophy, computing, data analysis, discourse analysis, focus groups and survey analysis.
This degree attracts ESRC 1+3 funding.
