Advanced Quantitative Methods

This pathway is for social scientists who wish to learn advanced quantitative methods for secondary-data analysis, and apply these methods appropriately to answer particular substantive questions from their disciplines. This includes social scientists who are interested in interdisciplinary research that requires the application of quantitative methods from one discipline to problems in another. This pathway is also for statistically trained researchers whose interests are more methodological. Projects may involve applying statistical methods used in other disciplines to social science problems, or developing novel statistical methods for analysing social science data. We welcome applications from students with backgrounds in statistics or related disciplines. You will normally be registered in the school of your first supervisor. This may not be the school that processes your application.

Entry requirements

Doctor of Philosophy - PhD: A master's (or equivalent) in a discipline from the social or health sciences, and familiarity with intermediate-level quantitative techniques or multiple regression. For more methodological projects within social statistics and biostatistics, an MSc in statistics or equivalent (eg econometrics) is required. See international equivalent qualifications on the International Office website.
