Course summary

The MA Social Research (Social Work and Professional Practice) is recognised by the ESRC as a research training pathway designed to provide participants with a sound background in overall research design and the most up-to-date training in methods, including data collection and analysis for potential doctoral students. It is aimed at those who have practice experience in the fields of social work, health and social care or criminal justice, and who are interested in undertaking an academic or research career. The MA Social Research (Social Work and Professional Practice) welcomes applications from international students. The core elements of this programme are delivered by staff from across the College of Social Sciences, many of them engaged in cutting-edge research in their particular fields.
