Yet, there exists a few political scientists who use quantitative methods and statistics venturing into areas such as voting behaviour, data collection and other numerical outcomes. These people are relatively rare but they do exist in departments and are sometimes necessary. From the student perspective, this will most probably be an optional module -- if it is offered at all.
Hey folks! I would like to ask whether the Bachelor Degree in Politics would involves many mathematical calculation?
I'm a first year politics student at the University of East Anglia and have found that so far there are no calculations involved but you do use data and so data interpretation is required. I would look at whether the course is a BA or BSc because a BSc in politics takes a more scientific approach so you may have to do some maths
