About Politics with Quantitative Research Methods at University of Bristol

This course is ideal for students interested in learning more about how to use numbers and data within politics. 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 Politics and International Relations course, where you will acquire core knowledge in your subject. The remaining third provides applied interdisciplinary training in quantitative methods.

In year one we discuss how numbers and data are used to tell convincing stories in the media and social research. We consider what is meant by segregation, and how it can be mapped and measured.

Year two offers practical classes in social statistics and applied data analysis, developing your skills in numeracy and analysis to advance your study of politics.

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.
