About this course

This BSc focuses on understanding the social and economic forces shaping our world. Crucially, it combines this with a rigorous training in the highly valued quantitative techniques and data analysis skills needed to examine them. You will study at least three social science disciplines including sociology and economics.

  • The UCL Institute of Education (UCL IOE) is a world-leading school for education and social science, ranked first in the world (QS World University Rankings 2015).
  • A multidisciplinary programme (drawing on different social science subjects) which allows you to choose from a wide range of modules and tailor the programme to your own interests.
  • Part of the UCL Q-Step Centre - a new and advanced training centre offering students unique opportunities for interdisciplinary learning, paid summer school internships and work placements.
  • You will be trained in specialist quantitative skills, which are in short supply in the labour market and are highly rewarded in a range of professions including government, academia, journalism, financial analysis and marketing.
