Course content

The course comprises a mix of faculty-wide research-based units and departmental disciplinary-based specialisations.

The Department of Social & Policy Sciences is committed to ensuring that postgraduate students acquire a range of subject-specific and generic skills during their training.

While studying for this MRes you will systematically review and critically evaluate alternative approaches, methodologies and paradigms of research in sociology, as well as the application of these approaches in the specific areas of social enquiry in which you specialise.

You'll be supported by an active research community in identifying, investigating and realising your own original research. We will equip you with the skills needed to contribute to research projects using any of the main methodologies of the social sciences.

Our courses are modular, consisting of self-contained units that are taught and assessed on a semester basis. As you progress through each semester and successfully pass the examinations, you'll receive credits for these units, thus providing you with a clear indication of your academic progress.

Teaching takes the form of lectures, classes and seminars. Lectures are quite formal, whereas classes and seminars involve interaction between the lecturer and a small number of students for study skills and discussion.

Our graduates have gone on to work in a wide variety of roles, such as:

  • social research in universities and research institutes, government, business, voluntary organisations and international organisations
  • public policy analysis at local, national and international levels
  • public information and campaigning in organisations concerned with wellbeing, sustainability and social justice
