Gain training in advanced research skills on our MRes Social Science Research Methods degree. Open to students across a range of disciplines, you’ll also develop the specialist skills of your subject area and designated School of Study.

You’ll be able to expertly apply the principles of social science research and design to your particular specialism and your own research projects. As part of this Master’s you’ll complete a significant piece of independent research, guided by a specialist supervisor who will be an expert in your chosen field. Before applying, we encourage you to contact our academics to discuss your potential research topics and discover how we can help you explore those areas.

In addition to your research modules, you’ll undergo professional training, which will prove essential to a successful career in research. You’ll refine your skills in writing research proposals, critically appraising research, and writing for publication. You’ll also have the opportunity to undertake a research placement as part of your degree, where you’ll apply the skills you’ve acquired in a real-world setting, whilst making valuable contacts in your chosen research field. At UEA, we’ve been ranked 10th in the UK for the quality of our overall research output (Times Higher REF2014 Analysis), with over 82 per cent of our research classified as either 'world-leading' or 'internationally excellent'.
