Social Work MRes

Study Details

MRes 1 year Full-time, MRes 2 years Part-time

The emphasis is on research training and on equipping students with theoretical, generic and specialist skills to carry out their own research and to come to judgements about the research of others in the social work field. A range of quantitative and qualitative approaches to data collection, analysis and interpretation are covered to an advanced level through a combination of taught courses and supervised dissertation work. The dissertation gives students the opportunity to examine by research aspects of social work in which they have a particular interest. The degree does not give a professional qualification in social work .
