INTRODUCTION
Whether economic or cultural inequalities, the dangers of our online lifestyles, the definitions and consequences of crime or the social dimensions associated with problems such as health, we aim to give our students an exciting study experience to understand better what it means to be social, where society might be heading and what we can do to contribute to all our social future.
Our teaching draws upon the expertise of the Department of Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology, where the academic environment and approachable staff create an atmosphere of mutual knowledge exchange between staff and students.
We’ll introduce you to the politics and practice of social research. You’ll explore the following aspects of the research process: the context of the modern university; the role of the social scientist; power, critique and reflexivity in the social sciences; the constraints, benefits and limitations of social science.
You’ll conduct an extensive research project on a subject of your choice supported by regular supervision from a sociological expert. We will provide you with research training to equip you with transferable skills, including critical thinking, problem-solving and project management.
This MRes is an excellent research training opportunity, and you’ll gain valuable experience whether you’re preparing for a career or looking for continuous professional development.
