LISS DTP delivers much of its training through 13 Pathways, covering five broad strategic research areas: (1) health, well-being and social inclusion; (2) economics and business; (3) language, culture and education; (4) the environment and urban life; and (5) security and governance.
Pathways are a means for students to engage with others researching in similar disciplinary areas. Each Pathway has both academic leads and student representatives, and organises training and development activities funded by LISS DTP. If you are interested in becoming a Pathway Lead or Student Representative, please contact us.
You can click on each Pathway in the table below for more details and to see the Masters courses in the Pathway which meet the ESRC’s Core Training Requirements. These are the Masters programmes that LISS DTP recommends for students applying for a 1+3 studentship.
