This innovative new degree is designed to produce graduates with training in quantitative and qualitative research methods who can examine social issues from various points of view. There’s a growing demand for this kind of skill set in all kinds of organisations across the public and private sectors.
You choose a major and a minor subject from the following: criminology; education, culture and childhood; human geography; journalism; physical geography; politics; sociology; social policy; and urban studies. Alongside your two subjects, you’ll get training in research methods from our ESRC-accredited Sheffield Methods Institute.
Every student gets to work on a project with an external client such as a business or a government department. There are opportunities to go on work placement. And we offer optional modules in career management skills and entrepreneurship.
