About this course

LJMU's MRes in Critical Social Science explores research in social sciences that informs society, organisations and institutions.

  • Pursue your own research interest under the guidance of specialist supervisors 
  • Develop an in-depth understanding of Critical Social Science research methods 
  • Develop your skills as an academic researcher, and gain the foundation for progression to PhD 
  • Enjoy a vibrant and innovative postgraduate culture

This Masters programme provides you with the opportunity to think beyond traditional subject boundaries and undertake a postgraduate level research project in your chosen area of specialist interest.

The MRes in Critical Social Science seeks to develop and extend your skills and knowledge in the practice and theory of research. The course is organised around both sociology and criminology specific content but also joining others across the school for an interdisciplinary approach designed to cultivate your understanding of research as an activity. 

This is a course which fosters a creative and innovative research culture, to encourage you to think broadly and creatively about different approaches to research.

The course will enhance your understanding of research in the social sciences and enable you to develop your own research interest in criminology and sociology, for example, crime, criminalisation and social harm, ecology, environment and activism, disease and social wellbeing, power inequality and the state, religion, gender and sexuality and globalisation.

You will gain the knowledge and skills required to complete an independent research project, and have the opportunity to become part of a network of criminological and sociological researchers and to enrich your academic and personal career development.
