Course overview

This Masters degree will equip you with the skills necessary to undertake sustained, independent and innovative research. You will gain the confidence to work in creative and flexible ways, and develop the ability to plan, produce and present rigorous, independent and theoretically informed studies. It also fosters the development of essential professional skills to enhance your employability, such as self-management, team work, problem solving and communication.

 

The taught components of the course provide a balance between training in interdisciplinary research methods and subject specific research under the supervision of UWE Bristol’s active research specialists. Alongside these, you will put your skills into practice by conducting a supervised independent extended research project.

 

Within the taught modules, there will be a seminar programme delivered by academics and practitioners from inside and outside UWE Bristol. You will be expected to present on your own research, using skills learnt in the taught modules and gaining valuable communication experience in the process.

Who is this course for

The course is suitable for students who have enjoyed the research components of their undergraduate degree and wish to prepare for a research-based career. It also offers excellent preparation for Doctoral study. Likewise, it is appropriate for people who are already working and who wish to either develop their research skills or undertake a research project to enhance their continued professional development.

What will I learn

The course consists of two taught modules. You will then undertake a supervised extended research project in one of the available subject areas.

 

  • Research Design and Methodologies (30 credits) covers qualitative and quantitative research methods, their use and analysis.
  • Research in Context (30 credits) a subject specific module designed to develop your research skills through reviewing, evaluating and presenting independently generated research material relevant to your extended project. Includes library skills development.
  • Extended Research Project (120 credits) allows you to investigate a relevant research topic in detail, working with a research supervisor and drawing on the skills developed in the taught modules.

 

The University continually enhances our offer by responding to feedback from our students and other stakeholders, ensuring the curriculum is kept up to date and our graduates are equipped with the knowledge and skills they need for the real world. This may result in changes to the course. If changes to your course are approved we will inform you.
