Please note that the Department is currently in the process of improving the structure of all Land Economy MPhil courses. The content of the programmes for 2017/18 will remain similar to the current ones.
The course aims to provide students with a broad grounding in social science research methods and to apply this in some area of Land Economy. The course provides strong research training through the Social Science Research Methods Centre (SSRMC) Training programme. This includes coursework across both quantitative and qualitative research methods and other aspects of research training.
