For me, the MSc in Social Research was the perfect grounding for doctoral research. This rigorous and rewarding course allowed me to develop my quantitative and qualitative research skills, grow my sociological imagination and hone my writing skills. Supported and inspired by a fantastic teaching team, I have no doubt that this MSc is the reason I was successful in my funding application for an ESRC PhD studentship.
But the potential rewards of this course are not purely instrumental or financial. The MSc introduced me to a particular kind of sociology that is so alive here at Goldsmiths. What is more, it allowed me to get stuck in and try it for myself! It has shaped how I design and think about research, and ultimately set me off on a much longer intellectual journey. Highly recommended!
