We're testing a new way of showing modules on the website

This list should give you a good idea of which modules you can take, however it may change before you begin your course, and may not show all available modules.


This course involves seven months of taught modules including Research Methods, Qualitative Methods in Social Research, Quantitative/Econometric Methods, Directed Reading and an optional module from the suite of modules offered within the School.

The choice of option will depend on the proposed area of research you wish to pursue and will be primarily literature based.

Core Modules

These modules are an essential part of your course.

Optional Modules

You need to choose one or more of these modules as part of your course.
