UCL European & International Social & Political Studies


EISPS Specialisms

  • The areas of specialism open to you are:
    • Anthropology
    • Economics (full)
    • Economics (element)
    • Geography
    • History
    • Law
    • Philosophy
    • Comparative and European Politics
    • Political Theory
    • Q-Step (Quantitative research methods)
    • International Relations
  • The difference between the Full Economics and the Element of Economics pathways is that the former prepares you for postgraduate work in economics whilst the latter does not.
  • Specialising in Law will provide an understanding of legal issues which is particularly advantageous when applying for law conversion courses - the necessary step before training as a solicitor or barrister.
  • The Quantitative Methods pathway provides advanced training in quantitative research methods through UCL’s Q-Step Centre. Along with their language modules and optional modules in the social sciences and humanities, students on this pathway take five core modules that equip them with skills in research design, data analysis, statistical computing, and data visualization.
  • Visit individual departments' websites for more information on available modules.
