About

This Social Research Methods programme at London School of Economics and Political Science draws on the range of expertise available within the Department, as well as related academic departments, in order to provide advanced training in social research methodologies, combined with the opportunity to focus on a substantive social science area.

Overview

The programme

The MSc Social Research Methods programme at London School of Economics and Political Science will provide you with the opportunity to develop sophistication in research design and quantitative and qualitative research, and to undertake courses in one or more social science disciplines. You will acquire skills of ‘practical scholarship’ and the ability to design, conduct, analyse and report a social research project. The MSc Social Research Methods also offers more specialised streams in Social Policy, Population and Gender.

The syllabus for the MSc goes some way beyond the ESRC's requirements for the first year of a 1+3 PhD programme, and it is designed as training for doctoral research and as pre-professional training for careers in social research in the public and private sectors.

Almost 50 per cent of the graduates of this programme have entered PhD programmes, or are working in social research in universities or national and local government.
