Drawing on 30 years of specialist research experience at the Child and Woman Abuse Studies Unit, this unique course combines theory and practice-based sessions. On this course you'll develop your ability to undertake research and evaluations in the area of violence against women and children.
This course will focus on methodological approaches to researching forms of violence, which are primarily targeted against women and children (eg. domestic violence, rape, sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse, sexual exploitation and trafficking, crimes in the name of honour, female genital mutilation, stalking and harassment) and evaluating support and prevention initiatives/interventions.
Content will cover
The course is assessed 100% by coursework, which involves the analysis of survey data followed by a research plan.
This will consist of two pieces of written assessments. The first, an analysis of survey data, will be submitted on day five of the course. The summative assessment is a plan for a research or evaluation project, to include a 2,000-word review of existing literature on methodological approaches to researching the chosen topic. The research plan must include an overarching research question, aims, objectives and a detailed case for the proposed methodology.
Students must pass both pieces of coursework.
