Overview

This programme provides practical, career-orientated training in social science research methods, including research design, data collection and data analysis relating to both qualitative and quantitative modes of inquiry.

Students will have the opportunity to specialise in particular methodologies and to learn more about the application of these methodologies to illuminate important issues and debates in contemporary society.

Career Prospects

Introduction

Research skills are highly transferable and marketable, and needed across a range of sectors – academic, government, charities and business. MRes students receive advanced training in both quantitative and qualitative research skills and gain experience of independent project management through the dissertation. Graduates can use their qualification to develop a career in any aspect of social research. The MRes is also ideal high-level preparation for doctoral research (PhD).

Queen's postgraduates reap exceptional benefits. Unique initiatives, such as Degree Plus and Researcher Plus bolster our commitment to employability, while innovative leadership and executive programmes help our students gain key leadership positions both nationally and internationally.

Employment after the Course

After graduation, students are well placed to continue on to doctoral research, applying their research skills to carry out an in depth investigation of a particular topic. Past graduates have secured funded PhDs on a variety of topics, from cyber surveillance to educational inequality. Some students have moved into careers in social research or used their qualification to upskill in their current job, for example, in charities or government departments.

Requerimiento de entrada

Para estudiantes de Estados Unidos

Entry to graduate diploma or taught Masters programmes usually requires either a UK upper second-class (2:1) or a lower second-class (2:2) undergraduate degree. For most courses, your major subject or content of your Bachelor's degree may also be considered. The comparable US qualifications are as follows: UK Upper Second-Class Honours (2:1); Bachelor degree with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.2. UK Lower Second-Class Honours (2:2); Bachelor degree with a cumulative GPA of at least 2.8. Please note the following key differences between graduate studies in the US and a taught Masters degree at Queen's: Master's degrees in the UK are normally one-year in duration. There is no GRE or GMAT required for entry to Queen's. A taught Master's refers to a program that combines academic instruction as well as the completion of a written dissertation. PhD degrees are three years in length and typically require you to have a Masters degree prior to applying and to prepare a research proposal. Minimum English Langauge requirements - 6.0 with minimum of 5.5 in all four elements of the test. Please refer the university website for details of the English Language requirements for entry to individual undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes.
