The MSc in Social Change, Standard Pathway, is similar to the research route, but offers a stand-alone one-year degree programme.
Students will study Social Capital and Social Change, Methodology and Research Design (MARD), Data Analysis for Social Scientists, Qualitative Methods and several substantive modules from a list that includes such titles as:
- Race, Ethnicity and Community
- Citizenship and Identity
- Social Theory and Cultural Identity
- Social Movements
- Democracy: Theory and Practice
This degree will provide both quantitative and qualitative training. It is aimed at those wishing to study the links between new globalising forces (eg modernization; democratization) and other changes in the social and political character of societies.
Each masters student conducts a research dissertation project. These projects cover the comparative analysis of gradual social change in different countries or regions.
