Subject Area: Social Research and Policy

How can social research be used to influence and change policy? In this course, you will undertake a social science research project in one of several policy areas. Building on the knowledge you have acquired in research courses and on the analytical skills necessary for policy-related work, you will develop and undertake a project with an applied focus. You will independently prepare a literature review and a research proposal, conduct the research, and write of a report embodying the results of the research. You will also work with a group on one aspect of the project and present an engaging summary of your research to the class. You will be actively supported by a Seminar Leader with expertise in a particular policy area.
