This module provides students with an introduction to a range of investigative research strategies in order to appreciate how the social world can be researched. Its major components include an introduction to research design, ethics in social research, strength and limitations of different research approaches and methodological issues in data collection, analysis and dissemination. On completion of this module, students will have gained a firm grounding in the principles of research design and the methodological issues associated with different types of research. This will enable students to critically engage with and assess published research - a key dimension in much academic and related work - and to understand the principles of primary data collection.
