O que eu aprenderei?

Within the public sector, there is an increasing emphasis on ‘evidence-based policy-making’ and on the critical review of policy-making and its impacts. The MA Social Research (Social Policy) will provide you with the skills to make a real difference in this area.

You will acquire a general overview of the philosophy of social research, and understand how this informs research design, methods of data collection and analysis. You will also develop an ability to use a range of research methods to communicate research findings effectively and an understanding of the potential use of, and impact of their research, within and beyond academia. Optional modules will offer you the opportunity to advance your command of specific research methods and techniques, as well as substantive areas of social policy.

This programme is recognised by the ESRC as a research training programme designed to provide you with a solid foundation in a broad range of social science research methods as well as basic research skills. The core elements of this programme will be delivered by staff from across the College of Social Sciences, many of them engaged in cutting-edge research in their particular fields.

If you are interested in undertaking an academic or research career in the areas of social policy, social work, health and social care or criminal justice fields, this programme could be for you. The programme will offer you a rigorous and systematic social research training, an opportunity to apply this to your particular area of policy.
