Sociological Theory and Practice - SCLG3602

Year - 2020

This unit addresses the political, ethical and practical problems that may arise during the process of conducting research. It will also examine the social and logical links between theory, method, data and analysis. In the seminars we will critically examine the work of other researchers to identify the strengths and weaknesses of their approaches. As part of their assessment, students will select a topic of their own and develop a theoretically informed research proposal.
