So it’s like zero maths? Like no calculation at all, just studies?

Predominantly and by a very high margin, the core modules of most degrees in politics deal with political theory, organisations, government policies, ideology, identity, human rights, etc.

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.

Hi Jack Ang
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
Let us know if you have any other questions
