Discipline-related research skills from the School of Social Sciences

SchoolsocscienceThe School of Social Sciences offers a programme of multidisciplinary training workshops. Subject-specific training and support is also offered via a diverse range of specialist research groups. Their programme is open to all PGRs at the University of Northampton.

Workshops coming up in 2016 include Research Impact, Researching with Vulnerable Groups (a joint workshop with the School of Health), and Open Access in the REF.

Given the broad range of subject areas within the School of Social Sciences, and the breadth of methodological approaches adopted, discipline-based training is also offered by 11 specialist research groups, which include the Centre for Children and Youth, Institute of Public Safety, Crime and Justice and Social and Cultural Research in Psychology.

For more information about the School of Social Sciences programme please contact Dr John Horton.

The discipline-related programmes from the Schools work alongside the Graduate School’s generic programme to deliver a complementary array of skills development sessions for research students and staff.
