Course summary

This BSc degree programme focuses on understanding the social and economic forces that shape our world. Crucially, it combines insights from the social sciences with rigorous training in the skills of quantitative data analysis that are highly valued in the labour market. You will study at least three social science disciplines including sociology and economics.

Your learning

Teaching will be delivered through lectures, seminars allowing in-depth discussion, computer laboratory classes analysing a range of different social science data, group work, and UCL's virtual learning environment.

Assessment

Assessment is through a mix of examinations, practical exercises, essays, individual and group presentations and a dissertation in the final year of study. The weight given to each assessment method will vary across modules to ensure manageable workloads throughout the programme.

Careers

The UCL Q-Step Centre was set up in the UK as part of a £19.5 million programme to combat the shortage of quantitative skills in the social sciences.

Having a quantitative degree can increase your job opportunities as graduates with strong quantitative skills and social science insights are in short supply. Professions include government departments, academia, journalism, financial analysis and marketing. The breadth and depth of the social science subjects and the methodological training provided by this degree will also equip students for Master's or PhD study.
