Pam astudio’r cwrs hwn

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. Mae’n rhoi gwybodaeth drylwyr i fyfyrwyr o ddylunio ymchwil, casglu data, a’r prif ddulliau o ddadansoddi data meintiol a data ansoddol y gwyddorau cymdeithasol.

Bydd y cwrs MSc Dulliau Ymchwil y Gwyddorau Cymdeithasol yn cynnig uwch-hyfforddiant mewn dulliau ymchwil ar draws holl ystod y gwyddorau cymdeithasol. Mae gan bob llwybr cwrs gydnabyddiaeth ESRC ac maent yn bodloni’r anghenion hyfforddiant ar gyfer cyllid PhD ESRC.

Mae’r rhaglen yn cynnig cyfleoedd helaeth i astudio’n rhyngddisgyblaethol, i gymhwyso arbenigedd o ran ymchwil gymdeithasol at ddatblygu gyrfa alwedigaethol, ac i fynd ar drywydd maes sylweddol o ddiddordeb ar lefel ôl-raddedig.

Cewch lawer iawn o wybodaeth ddamcaniaethol ac ymarferol am lunio astudiaethau ymchwil effeithiol, am yr amrywiaeth o ddulliau o gasglu data sydd ar gael i’r gwyddonydd cymdeithasol ac am y prif ddulliau o ddadansoddi data o fyd y gwyddorau cymdeithasol. Hefyd, cewch eich cyflwyno i’r fframweithiau gwleidyddol a moesegol y gwneir ymchwil i’r gwyddorau cymdeithasol ynddynt, a rhai o’r ffyrdd o ledaenu canlyniadau ymchwil gwyddorau cymdeithasol.

Llwybr Seicoleg

Mae’r Ysgol Seicoleg, sydd â llawer o adnoddau ac enw da rhyngwladol, yn un o ganolfannau seicoleg mwyaf y DU. Yn ôl y Fframwaith Rhagoriaeth Ymchwil diweddaraf, dyfarnwyd ansawdd ein gwaith ymchwil yn yr 2il safle yn y DU ar gyfer meysydd Seicoleg, Seiciatreg a Niwrowyddoniaeth.

Bydd y llwybr Seicoleg yn darparu gwybodaeth uwch am ddylunio, cynnal, dadansoddi a dehongli astudiaethau empirig o fewn disgyblaeth seicoleg. Mae myfyrwyr ar y llwybr hwn yn ymgysylltu â gweithgaredd ymchwil yr Ysgol mewn dau faes o fewn yr Ysgol, o niwrowyddoniaeth, gwyddoniaeth wybyddol, datblygiad a iechyd, a seicoleg gymdeithasol ac amgylcheddol.

Nodweddion unigryw

The formal research training programme in Psychology draws on the internationally recognised research conducted at Cardiff University.

We are one of the largest psychology departments in Britain, allowing us to offer well-resourced teaching and research opportunities in all areas of psychology, from neuroscience and brain imaging to environmental risk, social and developmental psychology, encompassing both basic science and applied aspects. Our teaching was judged to be 'Excellent' in the Teaching Quality Assessment.

We take pride that Cardiff educates UK and International students from all backgrounds. We offer a rounded academic student experience both socially and academically, with the opportunity to pursue a wide range of activities. The overarching objective of postgraduate research training employed within the School is to equip students with a level of competence, comprehension and understanding of the theoretical and methodological underpinnings of their research so as to allow them to compete as international calibre researchers in the future.

Strwythur y cwrs

You will undertake 6 20-credit modules. Five of the six modules are known as core modules, because they are designed to equip you with research skills and are followed by all students. The sixth module is specific to the particular pathway. For the psychology pathway this consists of research placements within the School of Psychology designed to provide more in-depth understanding of empirical research within the discipline of psychology.

In all modules you have the opportunity to engage with literature and research relevant to your Pathway (Psychology).

On successful completion of the taught component, you will prepare a dissertation (of a maximum 20,000 words) to be submitted by mid-September. The 60-credit dissertation component requires independent study. Dissertation topics are chosen by you in agreement with your supervisors.

Recent Psychology thesis titles on the course include:

  • Child salience and values: studying the effects of child primes on pro-social values.
  • The optimal dietary composition for weight loss amongst women with polycystic ovary syndrome: A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.
  • Predictors of starting a family: A systematic review and narrative synthesis of longitudinal studies.
  • Using a personalised IAT (Implicit Association Test) to detect sexual identity and attitudes towards one's sexual orientation.
  • A victim of gender? An evolutionary exploration of homicide and the victim-offender relationship.

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2022/23. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2022.

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.

Dysgu ac asesu

Sut y caf fy addysgu?

Your course is made up of scheduled learning activities (including lectures, seminars, tutorials and practical sessions) and guided independent study. You are expected to actively engage in all the educational activities on your programme of study, to prepare for and attend all scheduled teaching activities, and continue your development as an independent and self-directed learner.

For those continuing beyond the diploma to the MSc, the final part of the course comprises a dissertation (60 credits) for which students are allocated a tutor with whom they meet on a regular basis.  A research design and methods module is a compulsory module which contributes to preparation for the dissertation.  Dissertation topics are chosen by you in agreement with your supervisor.

Sut y caf fy asesu?

All modules are assessed through the submission of coursework during the academic year. This takes the form of research reports, essays, portfolios or other activities covered in the modules.

The research dissertation is independently marked after submission.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

All modules within the programme make use of our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) Learning Central, on which you will find course materials, links to related materials and information on assessment. You will be allocated a personal tutor and a dissertation supervisor when undertaking your dissertation, who will schedule regular meetings to discuss progress, provide advice and guidance, and give feedback on drafts.

Feedback

You will receive feedback throughout the year and for each module in a number of ways. Written feedback is provided on all submitted coursework and designed to help you improve the next piece of coursework, where applicable.
