Description

About MSci Social Policy with Quantitative Research Methods
This course is ideal for students interested in learning more about how to use numbers and data within social policy. It provides in-depth training in practical and analytical skills, which will enhance your career prospects and provide you with a strong platform for postgraduate research. No prior knowledge of statistical techniques is required.
About two thirds of your studies will follow the Single Honours Social Policy course, where you will acquire core knowledge in your subject. The remaining third provides applied interdisciplinary training in quantitative methods.
In year one we discuss how numbers and data are used to tell convincing stories in the media and social research. We consider what is meant by segregation and how it can be mapped and measured.
Year two offers practical classes in social statistics and applied data analysis. This will develop your skills in numeracy and analysis to advance your study of politics, enabling you to undertake your own individual research in an area of quantitative social science in year three. In year four we offer training in more advanced quantitative methods suitable for postgraduate research, while continuing to develop expertise and specialist knowledge in politics.
