Course content

This scheme, with funding from the North West Doctoral Training Centre, draws upon the acknowledged strengths of social science and social statistics; with the balance between the statistics and substantive components of the research tailored to your interests and background.
We encourage joint supervision by the Department and a social science or related department across the three North West universities (Lancaster, Liverpool and Manchester), thus increasing the scope and potential focus of your research.
The programme is suitable for a range of purposes, notably: social science graduates interested in quantitative empirical work and statistics graduates wishing to develop applicable expertise in social statistics.
Depending upon prior statistical learning, there is an option of studying for an MSc before progressing to the PhD.
