Course content

This Master’s by Research will take place within our Faculty of Health & Social Sciences.

A Master’s by Research (MRes) provides you with the opportunity for you to tailor your studies to your specific research interests or career aspirations, which would be assessed via submission of a thesis and a viva voce. Undertaking an MRes within the field of sociology at BU will allow you to collaborate with world-leading researchers in these areas.

You can set out to find the answer to a particular research question and will have the chance to delve more deeply into a subject area that you are passionate about. We strongly encourage collaboration across specialisms.

Your research project will be developed in collaboration with our academic University staff who will provide you with specialist knowledge and supervisory input, while accessing BU’s technical facilties and information resources.

You will also be part of BU's wider postgraduate community and have access to the suite of research, professional and personal training offered through the Doctoral College and your Academic faculty.
