This four-year course combines the highly rated Social Policy degree with an in-depth training in practical and analytical skills using quantitative research methods, and leads to a MSci degree. This course 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. The first three years of the course follow the BSc Social Policy with Quantitative Research Methods degree structure. The fourth year enables you to develop more advanced quantitative skills and to conduct an advanced quantitative research project, while continuing to develop expertise and specialist knowledge in social policy.
