Sociology with Quantitative Methods

On this programme, you will study how we interact and relate to one another, in short, how we create 'society'. You will explore questions such as: how do people organise collectively around common goals? How do people come to share knowledge and beliefs about the world around them? How do societies and social groups distribute and manage power among their members? How do they form common collective identities? How do individual actions contribute to large social trends - and vice versa? And perhaps the most fundamental question of all - how much do we create society, versus how much does society create us? One quarter of your study time will be devoted to quantitative methods. You will learn how to research sociology issues by using data in a practical setting. This programme offers you the opportunity to take a paid internship, allowing you gain practical experience and further strengthen your skills. Our placement hosts include prestigious institutions such as the Scottish Government, NHS Scotland and private sector employers. This programme receives support and funding from the UK-wide Q-Step initiative, allowing you to benefit from small class sizes and develop your skills in close proximity to experts. There is also plenty of support available to help those less confident with maths.
