Course summary

For students looking to undertake doctoral-level research in the Social and Political Science subject area, this Masters by Research degree will give you the necessary skills through a structured programme of research training.

The MSc by Research (MScR) is different from our other programmes in that, typically, taught masters have more focus on subject-relevant substantive topics rather than acquiring the skills to undertake advanced research, which is the focus of this degree.

You will have the opportunity to undertake research training alongside an independent research project, supported by a supervisor.

Our expertise and interests range across the following subject areas: African Studies; Global Health Policy; International Development; Medical Anthropology; Politics and International Relations; Social and Public Policy; Social Anthropology; Social Work; Sociology; Socio-cultural Studies; South Asian Studies

Your application must clearly state the subject area you are interested in and/or the potential supervisor you have contacted.
