Develop your practical skills in designing, collecting, analysing and presenting data to address social research questions. The unit considers the best research methods and the problems and limitations likely to be encountered by inexperienced researchers. You will learn how to select appropriate research techniques to use in different situations, ethical issues and the impact of new information technologies on social research. A series of workshops introduces major methodological techniques covering basic qualitative and quantitative approaches, including interviewing, case studies, group techniques such as focus groups, textual analysis and participant observation.
