Quantitative Social Sciences BA (Hons)
This course gets to the heart of social science and why it matters: how high-quality research is done, how it's communicated and the difference it can make to our lives.

One of only 15 UK Q-Step centres, we deliver intensive training in quantitative methods. From gathering and interpreting data, to understanding trends and how social statistics are created and used, you'll learn data literacy and analysis skills in an accessible, engaging, rigorous way.

You'll learn how to use statistical software packages to find answers to the important questions about society, through hands-on practical sessions using our state-of-the-art computer laboratory. You'll become a highly proficient researcher, adept at communicating your findings to both a specialist and non-specialist audience.

You'll also be well-versed in the intellectual concerns of contemporary social science, taking one of the following pathways:

* Criminology (Law)
* Sociology and Politics
* Human Geography
* Landscape and Urban Studies
* Management

You'll take a module that focuses on employability. There are plenty of chances to get valuable work experience, including on our placement scheme. You might work on a project for an industry partner, go on placement with a company or do consultation work for a local government office.
