Research Methods (Health) MA


Course Description

Our MA Research Methods (Health Pathway) will equip students with the in-depth skills required to carry out research in healthcare. The emphasis throughout is upon linking theoretical and methodological understandings with practical experience of research design and implementation.

Working in a highly stimulating environment, students will learn a variety of methodological approaches and research techniques and develop their ability to critique evidence required for making informed policy decision and clinical recommendations.

It will be of particular interest to those working within healthcare, will prepare students for doctoral-level studies (eg. PhD); which in turn will open up research career opportunities in the health service or academia, leading to future clinical academic or advanced clinical leadership roles.

The MA Research Methods (Health Pathway) is part of The University of Nottingham's Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Doctoral Training Centre (DTC), established as part of the new Postgraduate Training Framework introduced by the ESRC, which created 21 DTCs across the UK. Nottingham is one of just 12 DTCs which has gained recognition in its own right, rather than as part of a consortium. The Nottingham DTC will therefore play a key role in a national network, training the next generation of researchers.
