This programme provides you with a sound background in research methods and the opportunity to apply these within the context of professional practice and service provision. It is aimed at those who have practice experience in the fields of social work, health and social care or criminal justice, and are interested in undertaking an academic or research career.
The programme has ESRC recognition and offers students a rigorous and systematic social research training. It provides the most up to date training in methods and data collection and analysis, and an opportunity to apply this to their particular areas of policy and practice interest.
The core elements of the programme are delivered by staff from across the College of Social Sciences, many of them engaged in cutting-edge research in their own fields.
A good Honours degree or equivalent is normally required. This will usually be in a social science, although applications from those with degrees in other disciplines will be considered. Applications are also encouraged from those without an Honours degree who have five years or more relevant work experience in a policy or practice area.
