MSc Social Science Research Methods (Social Policy Pathway)
The Social Policy Pathway provides students with opportunities to address a wide range of topics and themes. Staff and students bring to the programme a wide variety of histories and academic backgrounds, which provides exciting exposure to a diversity of practical experiences as well as in-depth academic knowledge. The programme builds on the School of Social Sciences' reputation as a leading centre in social policy research and teaching.
The following research groups within the School are particularly relevant for social policy students:
- crime and justice
- subject and economy
- health and society
- risk, interaction and organisation
- sexualities and gender
- the study of knowledge and expertise
Several of these research groupings have well-established links with policy-makers and practitioners at the local, national and international levels. The result is an exciting and supportive environment for post graduate study.
