MA in Social Research


Course Description

This MA offers advanced training in quantitative and qualitative methodologies for undertaking research in Sociology and allied Social Sciences. It also allows you ample scope to explore your own specialist academic interests.

You’ll gain advanced knowledge and understanding of the theoretical issues involved in conceptualising social research, and the political and ethical questions involved in undertaking research investigations. Through hands-on training in quantitative and qualitative methods, you will also develop the skills necessary to design, conduct, analyse and communicate your findings. Optional modules enable you to explore specialist fields and to apply this knowledge to the independent research project that forms your dissertation.

The degree provides the necessary research training required to undertake a PhD or seek employment as a researcher in public, private or third sector organisations. Equally, it opens up many career paths that involve researching social life, and those that value analytical ability, the capacity to link theoretical sophistication to empirical research, and the skill of communicating complex ideas to a range of audiences.
