Research Methods Masters/Certificates
I'm looking for a Master or Graduate Certificate in Research Method(ology).
It should ideally cover both areas (qualitative and quantitative) and be oriented towards the social sciences /business area.
Since I'm living in Europe, the focus is on UK degrees esp. for the price/name recognition aspect.
This is so far what I came up with:
Univ. Of Strathclyde: http://www.mresearch.org
MRes: 12 months PgDip: 9 months PgCert: 4 months
Times Ranking 2010: 37
Nottingham Trent: http://www.ntu.ac.uk/apps/pss/course...Sociology.aspx
MSc Research Methods: PgCert: 15 weeks, PgDip: 15 weeks
Fee: £4,350 (Msc)
Times Ranking 2010: 57
Open University: http://www.open.ac.uk/oubs/programme...ment/index.php
MSc in Management and Business Research Methods
Times Tanking 2010: /
(I don't like the OU brand so this is a no)
Unfortunately this is all I could come up with (there are some other with a Psychology or Human Resources perspective which is limiting its application to much for my taste).
Anyone got any further suggestions?

| Psychology Degrees |
Psychologists study mental processes and human behavior by observing, interpreting, and recording how people and animals relate to one another and the environment. To do this, psychologists often look for patterns that will help them understand and predict behavior using scientific methods, principles, or procedures to test their ideas. Through such research studies, psychologists have learned much that can help increase understanding between individuals, groups, organizations, institutions, nations, and cultures. •Job opportunities
are naturally best for individuals with higher degrees. Individuals with a doctoral degree are highly sought after, especially ones who holds degrees in a particularly in-demand subfield, such as health; those with a master’s degree will have good prospects in the corporate environment; bachelor’s degree holders will have limited prospects due to steep competition. •Employment growth
will vary by specialty; for example, clinical, counseling, and school psychologists will have 11% growth; industrial-organizational psychologists will have 26% growth; and 14% growth is expected for all other fields of psychology.

Masters in Reseach

MRes programs (or programmes, if you insist)
There appears to be many MRes programs in Britain in many different subject areas.
So, instead of me listing each one, put this in your GOOGLE search line and browse for yourself:
online OR distance "mres" site:ac.uk
Thanks Jim for being that helpful!
But I'm looking specific for a mater IN research methods instead of a master BY research ;)
(The first is usually taught, dealing almost exclusively with methods and their application, the second has maybe 1-2 research modules but is mainly oriented towards a thesis.)
University of Illinois at Chicago: Educational Research Methodology Certificate
U.S. Army Command & General Staff College
I think that there's one or two offered by some of the Australian schools. I can't look it up right now. Maybe later.
Would a DPhil do?

Politics is made from two words: "poly" meaning "many" and "ticks" meaning "blood-sucking insects."
