Course Introduction

This course will study and examine the philosophical underpinnings of research designs, methods of data collection as well as data analysis and reporting. After this, they can opt to study either advanced qualitative or advanced quantitative analysis methods. Alongside these taught modules, students undertake a literature review around their proposed area of research. The literature review will inform the doctoral research design, which sets out the research to be undertaken in the PhD, if students choose to continue their studies.
