This Childhood Studies with Quantitative Research Methods course from University of Bristol is ideal for students interested in learning more about how to use numbers and data within childhood studies. 

Overview

The Childhood Studies with Quantitative Research Methods course from University of Bristol provides in-depth training in practical and analytical skills, which will enhance your career prospects and provide you with a strong platform for postgraduate research. No prior knowledge of statistical techniques is required.

About two thirds of your studies will follow the Single Honours Childhood Studies course, where you will acquire core knowledge about the lives of children from birth to 19 years old. Within a framework of children's rights, you will consider their participation and protection and the provision of services for children and young people. The remaining third of the course 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. This will develop your skills in numeracy and analysis, and enable you to undertake your own individual research in an area of quantitative social science in year three. In year four we offer training in more advanced quantitative methods suitable for postgraduate research, while continuing to develop expertise and specialist knowledge in childhood studies.
