The Course

Summary

Central and East European Studies - Students will study the history, economics, politics and sociology of the countries of Central and Eastern Europe. The University is a hub for a government-funded Centre of Excellence for Russian, Central and East European Studies, which hosts cultural, social and academic events throughout the year. Graduates have developed careers with a host of UK and international employers including the European Commission, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, local government, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), teaching and education services, journalism, human resources and administration, and the business community (developing trading links with the Central and Eastern European region).

Quantitative Methods - The University of Glasgow’s Q-Step Centre offers programmes which develop your quantitative skills, or in other words, your ability to handle data and use numerical evidence. Developing quantitative skills and your confidence in using them will really enhance your insight and understanding of the key issues you encounter in your chosen field of study. Social scientists with quantitative skills are able to evaluate evidence, analyse data, design and commission research. These skills are increasingly demanded across a wide range of professions and sectors, including government, business, charities and academia.
