Social Research Methods

We offer a range of Masters degrees which combine the study of a particular subject with advanced training in research methods. These MRes degrees are designed for people who wish to progress to a PhD or to work as a social researcher in a particular field. All are recognised by the ESRC as meeting their research training requirements.

Studying on these programmes gives you access to an enormous range of expertise. Methods courses are delivered by the College of Social Sciences Graduate School. You benefit by being taught research methods by academics who are specialists in particular approaches. At the same time, subject courses are taught by leading experts in their field.
