School of Social and Political Science: Undergraduate study


with Quantitative Methods (Q-Step)


Quantitative Methods underpin effective evidenced-based planning and procedure in the public, private and other sectors and it includes anything from the ability to design surveys or experiments to using quantitative evidence from surveys, digital media, archives and open data.

We have developed these programmes to address skill shortages in the labour market. This means that a degree with quantitative methods will open doors to a wide range of exciting and well remunerated careers.

Our degrees have been developed with the additional support and guidance of the Q-Step programme, a UK-wide initiative, a project seeking to equip future graduates with advanced data analysis skills. This additional funding results in excellent student-staff ratios.
