I want to apply next academic year to do applied social data science at LSE. the entry requirements say you must have a degree in "social science, data science, statistics or a quantitative field"
I am in my final year of a BA (Hons) in History and Sociology at Warwick, my degree is 50/50 in terms of content and I have done modules in quantitative methods learning both SPSS and Stata for data visualisation. I am on track for a first class
I just wanted to know whether my degree qualified or whether I will be at a disadvantage because half of my degree is humanities (although I focus on social history, my diss is definitely from a socio-historical perspective)
thank you in advance!

Hi! I'm a current student doing social data science at LSE. It might be a disadvantage for you not having programming background but you still stand a chance. You might want to focus on the quantitative courses you have taken in your application materials. My bet is that some of my classmates got in without a programming background. All the best to you!
