Course content

This MA in Social Research provides a rigorous introduction to key issues in social science methodology, expands your proficiency in a range of research skills, and prepares you for further advanced research in the social sciences.

Five different pathways are available: Sociology; Gender and Women’s Studies; Media and Cultural Studies; Environment, Culture and Society; Science, Technology, Innovation and Social Practices.

The MA and its tailored pathways represent an ideal stepping stone to a PhD and open access to ESRC and AHRC funding programmes. Students will carry out hands on training in selected research methods and skills, and will become skilled in the translation of theoretically informed research questions into research projects. As part of the MA students will complete an extensive independent piece of research.
