MA Social Research Pathways
Our unique MA Social Research course combines rigorous methodological training with flexible sets of modules in different areas of social inquiry.
The flexibility of this MA allows students to tailor its content in accordance with their own interests by studying within a particular pathway, without losing the focus on research training. It is recognized by the Northwest Doctoral Training Partnership (Economic and Social Research Council) and therefore is eligible for funding through MA or MA+PhD studentships.

Below are details of the ‘typical’ modules studied within each pathway. It is possible for pathways to be slightly amended to tailor them more closely to the students' needs. If you have any questions about which pathway is best suited to your interests, please contact us.
