About BSc Childhood Studies with Quantitative Research Methods

This course combines the highly-rated Childhood Studies degree with an in-depth training in practical and analytical skills using quantitative research methods, as part of a national initiative addressing the shortage of social science graduates with quantitative skills. These skills are highly valued by graduate employers and are beneficial for students going on to postgraduate research.

Two-thirds of your studies will follow the Childhood Studies course and you will acquire core knowledge about the lives of children from birth to 19 years old. Within a framework of children's rights, you will consider their participation and protection and the provision of services for children and young people.

The remaining third of the degree provides interdisciplinary training in quantitative methods. Practical classes in social statistics and applied data analysis will develop your skills and advance your understanding of childhood studies. In your third year you will undertake your own individual quantitative research dissertation in an area of childhood.

It is possible to continue your studies for a fourth year on the MSci Childhood Studies with Quantitative Research Methods.
