Introduction to Social Research Methods (#SOCRMx)

How does ‘society’ function? What makes ‘culture’? These are questions that can help us to understand the most pressing issues today – but how do we answer them? This course will explore the methods used by researchers in social science.

This social sciences course is about trying to understand ‘methods’ and the ways researchers go about trying to find things out about people, societies and cultures.

This course isn’t a practical or technical guide to doing research. Rather, it offers a way for us to think deeply about what methods are, and what they allow us to achieve.
