Course summary

Our MSc Social Research is an interdisciplinary social science training programme designed to prepare you for further research in the workplace or for MPhil/PhD study.

The programme covers ontology, epistemology, quantitative and qualitative techniques, and advanced methods masterclasses. You also carry out an independent dissertation, putting into practice the methods and theoretical concepts you have been taught.

The programme provides a particularly strong environment for theoretically informed, interdisciplinary and socially engaged research.
