This programme integrates a core of social research with evaluation research. Modules are shared with the nationally recognised and long established MSc in Social Research
. This provides students with an opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding of the research processes.
This programme extends that knowledge to the specific area of evaluation research. It allows students to specialise and provides important policy-relevant skills. It integrates evaluation research to provide students with a flexible opportunity to develop and apply their knowledge and understanding of the research process.
The award is intended for those who wish to develop an understanding of both evaluation and social research in theory and practice, either before taking up employment, whilst in employment as part of a career development programme or as a preliminary to doctoral research.
In addition, because this programme uses a core of modules which are utilised on a suite of similar programmes there is flexibility to change between these programmes if a student so wishes. (MSc Social Research
, MSc Social and Market Research
