About

Overview

The College of Social Sciences welcomes all postgraduates to the recently redesigned MA in Social Research programme which continues to enjoy full Research Training recognition by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). 

This Social Research programme offered by the University of Birmingham aims to provide students with a sound background in social research design and the most up-to-date training in methods of data collection and analysis. The combination of core modules and advanced training courses on more advanced topics provides maximum flexibility for taught postgraduate and research students throughout their study.

The core elements of the programme are delivered by staff across the entire College, many of whom are engaged in cutting-edge research in their own fields. Students benefit by undertaking this training with students from numerous diverse departments including the Business School, Economics, Education, Government and Society, Institute of Applied Social Studies and Social Policy; and within the wider College. 

Students will also receive more discipline-specific research training, as well as dissertation supervision, provided by individual departments. On completion of this MA, many students continue their studies as a graduate research student, or pursue a career in research in the public, private, or voluntary sector.

Many students go on to do a PhD after completing this MA. Others have followed a career in local authorities, government departments, health authorities, management consultancy, media, the voluntary sector.
