School of Social and Political Science: Undergraduate study


Degree Programmes

We offer a range of distinctive undergraduate programmes based on the Scottish four-year Honours MA. This degree structure means that you will have the time to develop your subject knowledge and your quantitative skills to a level that will impress employers when you graduate.

One quarter of your study time will be devoted to quantitative methods. This will teach you how to use and interpret data to answer questions in your specific study area.

Our programmes receive further support and funding from the UK-wide Q-Step initiative, allowing students to benefit from small class sizes and the ability to develop your skills in close proximity to experts. There is also plenty of support available to help those less confident with maths.

The Quantitative Methods with Social Science programmes that are currently on offer are:

MA Government, Policy and Society with Quantitative Methods

MA International Relations with Quantitative Methods

MA Politics with Quantitative Methods

MA Social Policy with Quantitative Methods

MA Sociology with Quantitative Methods
