Research Project

Module code: SY3042

This unique module will give you the time, support and resources to undertake your own research project. After designing it you’ll then identify, analyse and handle sociological information to explore your research questions.

Thinking about what questions your research will ask and setting research tasks will help structure your project, and you’ll discuss these with your project supervisor. While working on your project you’ll assess evidence and methods, reflect contextually upon sociological texts and address the theoretical and methodological problems proposed by sociological literature and practise.
