The MSc/Diploma in Social Science Research Methods (SSRM) was established to provide training in research methods across the full range of the social sciences. Students from a number of academic Schools follow the programme: Cardiff Business School, Cardiff Law School, Cardiff School of Planning and Geography, Department of Politics and International Relations, Cardiff School of Psychology, and Cardiff School of Social Sciences.
The SSRM offers an excellent environment in which to exchange ideas and experiences across conventional disciplinary boundaries within the social sciences. Pathways through the SSRM include:
The course pathways have ESRC recognition and they each provide the appropriate training basis for proceeding to a PhD, as they meet the requirements of the ESRC Wales Doctoral Training Centre (DTC). The SSRM also provides knowledge and expertise suitable for careers in research and development, business, market studies, public agencies at international, national and local levels, teaching and other public services work, and voluntary organisations. Whatever your intended career trajectory, we hope that you will find the MSc/Diploma programme interesting, challenging and rewarding.
