Sociology Project (L3031)
Module details for 2011 cohort.
FHEQ Level 6
The aim of this module is to give students direct experience of carrying out a small scale research project, from the initial stages of design to the final stages of presenting your findings. It is intended to consolidate and build upon the knowledge base gained from the DSR research methods module in the second year, as students will use these skills to research a topic of their choice. Students will be assessed on how well they interpret and apply the relevant methodological issues to your research design, manage the practical side of the project, and reflect on the effectiveness of your chosen strategies. Students work mainly through independent study, under the guidance of a supervisor. The assessment consists of a research proposal, presentation and 8000 word written report.
Students must have taken Sociology Research Proposal (L4056)
