Academic year 2022/23, Trimester 1
Module name: Understanding Social Science Research (SSC07103).
Module leader: Nick Cimini
Brief description of content: The module is an introduction to social science research methods – including both qualitative and quantitative methods. It also includes a study skills element that runs throughout the module. Tutorials involve 1. some study skills sessions, 2. some hands-on engagement with quants/quals data, and 3. preparing for the assessment by closely reading and discussing examples of contemporary research. In the assessment, which consists of a 2,000 word essay, students are asked to pick one of these example pieces of research and to write critically about the method/s employed.
Teaching pattern: Tutorials are one hour every week (Weeks 2 to 12) with the exception of a two hour computer lab on Week 6 (in which students will be introduced to SPSS)
Required skills: Colleagues working on the module will need to have basic/introductory level skills in both quants and quals. Tutor handbooks will be provided.
