The content will be delivered in the form of 5 units. In addition to engaging with the module team and fellow students in discussions and debate on set topics, students will have the opportunity to engage in supporting exercises in relation to generating and analysing qualitative data.
Assessment will be via an essay (4,500 words) which requires students to critically evaluate the potential contribution of qualitative methods in answering a range of research questions, outlining both opportunities and challenges. Students will be able to choose from a list of four potential research topics.
