20 Credits SPRING

Pre-requisites: LAW353

Aims/Description: This module extends research methods abilities developed initially in earlier research methods modules. There, students learned to manipulate and analyse data using SPSS on a computer. Here, students will work in small groups developing research ideas to form a fully developed questionnaire, which will be subsequently administered to a small general public sample via Corporate Information and Computing Systems (CICS). Thereafter, resulting data are coded, computerised and analysed, and results written up as an individual report.

Restrictions on availability: Only available to law students (and BA Soc/Pol). Cannot take LAW226.

Staff Contact: WATERS JAIMIE
