Summary

The MSc in Social Research Methods and Statistics is designed to be accessible to non-statisticians, yet is more focussed than many other existing master's courses in social research methods.

You'll need a base level of knowledge in undergraduate research methods which you will build on throughout the course, to gain comprehensive statistical and analytical skills. A series of pre-sessional training courses are available prior to the MSc start date.

The MSc has a strong connection with the Cathie Marsh Institute for Social Research (CMI), reflecting our commitment to interdisciplinary, integrated research. Research activities within the Social Statistics discipline area are both methodological and substantive. We focus on a wide range of subject areas including social inequalities, population dynamics and survey methodology.

The course is recognised by both the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the North West Doctoral Training Centre, from whom we receive a large number of Advanced Quantitative methods (AQM) and CASE awards each year.

We develop future social scientists who will have a thorough grounding in research, and are equipped with the tools for collecting and analysing statistical data.
