Social Science Methods

The focus of this programme is on the methodology of the social sciences. It is designed to build research capacity among social researchers and to help meet a growing demand – in government, the private sector and civil society – for integrated training in quantitative and qualitative research methods. The programme will benefit, inter alia, social researchers, methodology lecturers, as well as planners and policy analysts in government and civil society.

The general purpose of the programme is to develop students’ expertise in social research methodology and social research techniques to enhance their capacity as social researchers.

The short course programme draws on modules in the PG Dip in Social Science Methods. Please contact the programme co-ordinator for more information.
