Sociology and Quantitative Methods - University of Manchester

- Do you want to focus on research skills and explore how research design affects our knowledge of the world around us? - Are you interested in going on to postgraduate study, such as our nationally esteemed MSc in Social Research Methods and Statistics, supported by bursaries? - Would you like the chance to study abroad for a semester? - Take the right course units and you can apply for a paid summer internship through Manchester's Q-Step programme. Sociology and Quantitative Methods is a pathway within the BA (Social Sciences) degree or BASS for short. BASS at Manchester is designed to give you maximum flexibility and choice. If you feel that you are interested in the social sciences but fancy the chance to try out a range of different topics, this could be the degree for you. When you apply, you select one of the ten joint pathways of the BA (Social Sciences), each of which has its own unique course code. Although you'll start off on your chosen two-subject pathway, by Year 2 you can take a minimum of three subjects and a maximum of five and you can then specialise in any one or two subjects in your final year. In every subject you are given a wide range of course units to choose from, and a high degree of flexibility in the way in which you combine them as your academic interests develop. **The six main subject areas are:** - Sociology : The study of society and examines such issues as social inequalities and forms of everyday life. - Quantitative Methods : The study of data and analysis to understand the social world. - Criminology : The study of the causes and consequences of crime. - Philosophy : The study of fundamental questions such as the nature of knowledge, truth and values. Philosophy also encourages greater consideration of our reasoning, judgement and ethics. - Social Anthropology : The study of societies and cultures across the globe in comparative perspective. - Politics : The study of human organization, government and power. Politics examines and evaluates political systems and institutions. **Special Features** - BA (Hons) Social Sciences contains a broad-based first year which is particularly valuable if you have not taken any social science subjects before entering university. - There are a vast range of optional course units available to you in the second and third years. Despite the variety of these courses, all are taught by the experts in their fields - a benefit of a faculty degree. - Our Sociology department was ranked top in the country for research. 'Excellence' in research feeds into teaching so that students are taught by experts with a real passion for their subject. - Take the right course units and you can apply for a paid summer internship through Manchester's Q-Step programme.
