I agree with Nead, it is practical subject so better to go with full time course. Distance learning will not help in

Thread: MA or MSc in Sociology for PhD in History

I did my undergrad in history and intended to go to grad school to pursue a PhD in history and ultimately be a professor of history… and sometime in my junior year I got my hands on an NSF report on what PhDs in various disciplines did post-degree. This was in 1985 and is possibly even worse today, but then, only 16% of history doctorates were working in a tenured or tenure-track academic position. The rest? I didn’t care. I wanted to PROFESS. My “minor” (we didn’t have minors at my college per se, but the discipline where I’d taken the second largest number of courses) was sociology, which I actually liked far more than history… and the corresponding figure was almost 70%! The highest percentage of any of the social sciences.

A PhD in sociology is very adaptable- you can teach, do market research and polling, do litigation consulting… there are no unemployed soc PhDs that I know of. Underemployed, perhaps, but it’s very much worth it.

Researchers who have completed their academic training (as a rule, those who hold a doctorate) are eligible to submit project proposals with a defined thematic focus and project duration.
• Research Grants
Research grants enable individuals who have completed their academic training to conduct at any time research projects with clearly defined topics and durations, regardless of the subject.
• Scientific Networks
Scientific networks offer early career researchers the opportunity to engage in scientific exchange and cooperation on topics of common interest across locations.
• Research Fellowships
Research Fellowships are intended to help early career researchers to conduct a defined project at a location of their choice in a country other than Germany and to use it as an opportunity to familiarise themselves with new research methods or to bring a large project to a conclusion.
• Emmy Noether Programme
The Emmy Noether Programme gives exceptionally qualified early career researchers the chance to qualify for the post of professor at a university by leading an independent junior research group for a period of six years.
• Heisenberg Programme
If you already meet all the requirements for appointment to a permanent professorship, you can apply to the Heisenberg Programme. While you prepare for a future senior academic role, the DFG provides funding to enable you to carry on with high-quality research at the institution of your choice and continue building your academic reputation.
• Clinical Trials
The Clinical Trials Programme enables individuals who have completed their academic training to conduct at any time patient-oriented clinical research within a temporary project. The programme provides funding for interventional clinical studies, including feasibility studies (phase II) and interventional trials (phase III). The programme also funds observational trials, provided that the study investigates a highly relevant research question that cannot demonstrably be answered using an interventional design.
• Workshops for Early Career Investigators
Workshops for early career investigators are a strategic funding instrument. These are aimed particularly at established researchers seeking to address a perceived lack of early-career researchers in their field by holding workshops for early career investigators on specific topics.

I agree with pm133. Nobody can write whole proposal here as it will be a long process. We can give some important points to add in it. I am writing primary outcomes of study of chronic migraine headaches.

Primary Outcome Measures:

1. Percentage of Participants With Episodic Migraine (EM) or Chronic Migraine (CM) [TimeFrame:Baseline]
EM is defined as <15 headache days/month and CM is defined as ≥15 headache days/month.

2. Migraine Disability Assessment (MIDAS) [TimeFrame:12 Months]
The Midas score is a patient completed 5-item questionnaire about lost time and productivity (for work, school or family/social activities) in the past 3 months (number of days missed) where: 0-5=Little or No disability, 6-10=Mild disability, 11-20=Moderate disability or 21+ Severe disability. The Midas scores assessed at Months 3, 6, 9 and 12 were averaged.
