Information for students considering studying for a "with Quantitative Methods" degree: School of Social and Political Sciences.

In order not to limit your routes to honours, the quantitative methods courses begin in your second year as your 'third option'. QM1 measuring your social world is an introductory course which will lay the foundation for all other courses (Course code SPS1001). QM2 is more advanced and opens you up to more complex methods of analysis (Course Code SPS2001). Simply search for these courses on My Campus and enrol.

What if I take QM1 and QM2 and don’t want to continue with the pathway?

That is fine. QM1 and QM2, as with all our courses can be taken for the credits. In junior honours you need to be a bit careful about only doing some of Quantitative Methods: Research Design and Method Selection, Quantitative Methods: Advanced Regression and a fourth year course. Only if you complete all 3 can you graduate 'with Quantitative Methods'. Taking one or two of the honours courses will give you credits towards a single honours degree because under the MA SocSci rules you can take up to 60 credits over the 2 years of a single honours degree outside your subject area, however this may restrict you from taking other courses outside of your subject area in addition. Your advisor of studies, or one of the Q-Step team can offer more detailed advice.
