Course summary

Providing broad-based training in social science research, this course will equip you with the skills to manage a successful research career and contribute to wider society in a number of ways.

Overview

MA Social Science Research (Sociology) is part of the Midlands Graduate School ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership, which recognises the importance of bringing cutting-edge expert knowledge to the heart of doctoral training.

Core modules provide a comprehensive basis to progress to advanced training in research methods. You will be able to undertake advanced subject-specific training in our areas of expertise, providing a wide range of opportunities to deepen and broaden your skills.

Primarily aimed at students following an ESRC-funded pathway onto a PhD, this course may also be suitable if you are intending to apply for +3 ESRC funding (to cover a PhD) or are interested in developing a wide range of social science research skills. It will also prepare you for research posts in academic, voluntary, private and third-sector settings.

Careers

With a clear grasp of the ethical and political issues which arise in social science research, you will be equipped to pursue a range of careers. This could include research and managerial roles in private, public, and third sector organisations, non-governmental organisations, academia, civil service and journalism.

This course provides an excellent route into further academic study and many of our students go on to complete doctoral research before pursuing an academic career.

Our graduates move into a wide range of careers following their time in the school. Studying at postgraduate level can give you a head start in the job market by helping you to gain new knowledge and develop vital skills.
