About BSc Childhood Studies with Quantitative Research Methods

This course is ideal for students interested in learning more about how to use numbers and data within childhood studies. It provides training in practical and analytical skills, which will enhance your career prospects and provide you with a strong platform for postgraduate study. No prior knowledge of statistical techniques is required.

About two thirds of your studies will follow the Single Honours Childhood Studies course, where 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 applied interdisciplinary training in quantitative methods. Practical classes in social statistics and applied data analysis will develop your skills and advance your understanding of childhood. In your third year you will undertake your own individual research in an area of quantitative social science.

There is also a four-year undergraduate degree option, offering more advanced quantitative methods training for those wishing to graduate with a MSci qualification.
