Social Research MRes


Course Description

The MRes programme, available full-time and part-time, will give you advanced theoretical and practical training in postgraduate level research.

You’ll conduct a substantial research project, which will give you valuable experience whether you’re preparing for a career or looking for continuous professional development.

The taught programme comprises one ‘core’ (SOCR501 Introduction to Research) and one ‘optional’ module (either SOCR507 Advanced Qualitative Methods, SOCR508 Advanced Quantitative Methods) to a total of 60 credits.

The research dissertation no shorter than 25,000-30,000 words provides the remaining 150 credits (i.e. 83%) of the programme, emphasising the focus on research.

You can expect regular (at least fortnightly) supervision so this is an excellent research training opportunity, with a respected Masters qualification at the end.

Why Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology?

Our work makes a tangible difference to society

Our research over the past five years has led to changes in criminal justice policy and procedure, changes in the way that public bodies are audited, and has led to the establishment of best practice in the evaluation of large-scale arts and cultural programmes.

An exciting study experience

Whether economic or cultural inequalities, the dangers of our online lifestyles, the definitions and consequences of crime or the social dimensions associated with problems such as health, we aim to give our students an exciting study experience in order to better understand what it means to be social, where society might be heading and what we can do to contribute to all our social futures.
