Kate Lennon, BA Politics, International Studies and Quantitative Methods
Politics, International Studies and Quantitative Methods is a unique and hugely enjoyable course unlike any other. As a current student I am being equipped with a huge range of knowledge and skills that will transfer into a wide range of jobs.
The best thing about the Politics, International Studies and Quantitative Methods course is the variation in topics that I am able to study. In a typical week I go from having lectures in political theory and world politics, to studying qualitative methods and statistical topics. Not only is this engaging but I feel that it will give me a range of skills applicable to the work place.
The degree is run by the Politics and International Studies (PAIS) department, which I have found to be really supportive and welcoming since my time starting at Warwick. Before starting university I knew that the department was ranked as one of the highest in the country and I completely see why! As PAIS students we regularly get offered the chance to go to talks held by prestigious speakers – this term alone talks have been held by Sir Vince Cable and the President of Malta, as well as numerous other distinguished individuals. Not only this, but there is so much support in terms of workshops being held on essay writing, drop in sessions with members of the department, and lots of useful feedback given on assessed work.
In the past I have been assured frequently that university will be ‘the best three years of your life’ and no statement is more true of my time at Warwick so far; I’m so happy I decided to come here and would recommend it to anyone.
Paul Wang, BA Politics, International Studies and Quantitative Methods
Choosing Warwick to study Politics, International Studies and Quantitative Methods is the best choice I have made so far.I chose Warwick over the other universities because both the degree and the department offer a broad range of opportunities that create an outstanding studying experience for students.
The degree provides a specific range of quantitative analysis tools, which is quite unique at an undergraduate level. It has helped me to deepen my understanding of the world, so that I am able to develop in-depth and detailed political research skills. Furthermore, the degree offers a three-week long paid internship after the 2nd year, which is really exciting!
The social life on campus is really fantastic too. There is always a way to get involved and I usually have to choose what event to attend. Between the PAIS Film Club, conferences, various socials and societies events, the opportunities are just countless.
