Course content

This course provides you with training that will prepare you for doctoral-level work, and provides a stand-alone qualification in social science research.

The Master of Research is a faculty-wide, cross-disciplinary research training course with an education strand. It provides high-quality training to potential doctoral students as well as a stand-alone qualification for social science researchers.

Depending on your research interests you will be placed in a research group within the Department of Education, which will have seminar and reading group activities that you can join.

You will also spend a short period of time shadowing an experienced researcher.

The course aims to:

  • teach you to systematically review alternative approaches, methodologies and paradigms of research in social and educational enquiry
  • enable you to critically evaluate the application of these approaches in the specific areas of social and educational enquiry in which you specialise
  • support you within an active research community, in identifying and investigating your own original research questions
  • equip you with the skills to contribute to research projects using any of the main methodologies of the social sciences
