The BSc (Hons) Sociology with Quantitative Methods offers you the opportunity to specialise in quantitative methods in your final year. You will receive hands on training in quantitative methods and will be given the opportunity to undertake a real world research project while on a placement in a local organisation. You will have the opportunity to consider the operations of contemporary society and how social characteristics, such as gender and social class, influence the ways in which people live their lives. You will consider how the relationship between national governments and their citizens is changing, and how this affects key ideas about contemporary issues that include work, education, crime and punishment. You will also address how the links between people and institutions are increasingly global and how to research behaviour, characteristics and beliefs in an effective and ethically considered manner.
