• The role of theory in social research
• The politics and ethics of research
• Rigor and validity in research
• Using quantitative data-sets for research on religion
• Ethnographic approaches in theory and practice
• Developing research interviews
• Applying Gender and Sexuality perspectives in the study of religion
• Comparative sociological methods
• Historical methods in the study of religion
• Writing journal articles and Book proposals

To attend this training program, students not registered at the University of Kent will be required to pay a £100 registration fee, which would cover attendance at all sessions and the costs of training materials.
