About MSci Childhood Studies with Quantitative Research Methods

This four-year course combines our childhood studies course with an in-depth training in practical and analytical skills using quantitative research methods, leading to a MSci degree.

This has been developed as part of a national initiative addressing the shortage of social science graduates and postgraduates with advanced quantitative skills. It will enable you to develop a distinct skill set that is highly sought after by graduate employers and could provide a clear route into further research and postgraduate study. No prior knowledge of statistical techniques is required.

In year one of the quantitative pathway, 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, and enable you to undertake your own individual research in an area of quantitative social science in year three. Year four incorporates further advanced quantitative methods training.
