Dulliau Ymchwil y Gwyddorau Cymdeithasol (Troseddeg) (PgDip) Rhan-amser

Mae'r rhaglen hon yn cynnig hyfforddiant uwch mewn dulliau ymchwil ar draws holl ystod y gwyddorau cymdeithasol - mae’n cyd-fynd â gofynion grant ESRC ar gyfer cwrs PhD.

Our Postgraduate Diploma in Social Science Research Methods aims to provide advanced training in research methods across the full range of the social sciences. 

You will be provided with a thorough theoretical and practical knowledge of how to construct effective research studies, of the variety of data collection methods available to the social scientist and of the principal methods of analysing social scientific data. You will also be introduced to the political and ethical frameworks within which social science research is conducted, and to some of the ways in which the results of social science research are disseminated.

The course pathways have ESRC recognition and they each provide the appropriate training basis for proceeding to a PhD. These programmes provide extensive opportunities for interdisciplinary study, the application of social research expertise for occupational career development, and the pursuit of substantive areas of interest at postgraduate level.

Criminology pathway

Criminology at Cardiff has a long-established international reputation and stature (it has been taught since 1976). Over the years we have welcomed a significant number of students from Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas. Our staff are nationally and internationally renowned for pioneering research and writing on both specialist and general topics. Our staff and your peer students bring a wide variety of histories and academic backgrounds to the programme which provides exciting exposure to a diversity of practical experiences as well as in-depth academic knowledge.

The Cardiff Centre for Crime, Law and Justice (CCLJ) has a thriving research culture supporting the work of over 30 doctoral students. You are actively encouraged to take part in the Centre’s activities and regularly present work in progress with academic staff at tri-weekly meetings.

The Criminology pathway provides you with analytic and research skills, an interdisciplinary knowledge base (as criminology draws upon the perspectives of sociology, social policy, law, psychology, and political science), and practical understanding of the production of criminological research.

Upon completion of the course, you will be equipped with an understanding of:

  • How problems of crime, safety and justice can be investigated.
  • What research strategies, designs and methods of investigation can be used to evidence problems of crime, safety and justice.
  • How evidence about problems of crime, safety and justice can be analysed, interpreted, communicated and criticised.

Nodweddion unigryw

You will be supervised by academic staff with considerable expertise in their chosen fields. These staff members are actively involved in disseminating research via publications in academic and practitioner journals, books and presentations to conferences. Many staff members are involved in editing or reviewing for scholarly management journals.

Rhagor o wybodaeth am ofynion Iaith Saesneg.

Mae'n rhaid i ymgeiswyr sydd angen fisa Haen 4 i astudio yn y DU gyflwyno cymhwyster iaith Saesneg derbyniol er mwyn bodloni gofynion UKVI (Fisâu a Mewnfudo y DU).

This is a two-year part-time programme.

You will be required to complete six 20-credit modules - five core research modules and one specialist pathway module.

In all modules, you will have the opportunity to engage with literature and research relevant to your pathway.

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2020/21. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2020.

Blwyddyn un

Blwyddyn dau

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.
