Social Science Research Methods (Social Work) (Taught) | Graduate diploma / certificate | Humanities & Culture | On Campus | 1-2 Years | Cardiff University | United Kingdom
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 programs 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.
The modules shown are an example of the typical curriculum and will be reviewed prior to the academic year. The final modules will be published by September.
