Can I apply if I have no prior experience in quantitative methods?
The Master’s program is research-oriented with a focus on quantitative methodology – we work with various statistical procedures and methods. You will be instructed to conduct empirical research, including independent quantitative empirical research. While a firm basic knowledge in quantitative methodology is an enrollment requirement, you will be able to deepen your expertise in quantitative methods during the studies. You will learn to critically evaluate quantitative empirical literature and learn how to answer your own research questions with quantitative data.
If you do not have any experience with statistical methods, then you should acquire these before you start to study the Master's program.
If you wish to focus on the qualitative methods and to improve your knowledge of them, you should choose a different Master’s program that is dedicated to qualitative methods.
