What will I learn?

Our MRes Social Research and Gender and Sexuality is an interdisciplinary social science training programme designed to prepare you for further research in the workplace or for MPhil/PhD study.

The programme covers ontology, epistemology, quantitative and qualitative techniques, and advanced methods masterclasses alongside substantive courses in the area of gender and sexuality. You will also carry out an independent dissertation, putting into practice the methods and theoretical concepts you have been taught.

The programme provides a particularly strong environment for theoretically informed, interdisciplinary and socially engaged research.
