Methodology and Statistics for the Behavioural, Biomedical and Social Sciences


Course Description

Methodology and Statistics for the Behavioural, Biomedical and Social Sciences

The Master's programme familiarises you with issues of research design, data collection, analysis methods and statistical tools as applied to biomedical, behavioural and social sciences.

The field of methodology and statistics is by its nature interdisciplinary, as it relates to all fields of behavioural, biomedical and social research. Social science methodology concentrates on central issues in research design and data collection, with the aim of improving the quality of empirical research. In addition, the complex theories and research designs currently used call for advanced analysis methods, which in turn require mastery of the statistical foundations of these methods, and training in their skilled use.

Finally, there are strong interconnections between methodology and statistics. Modern social, biomedical and behavioural research uses highly advanced quantitative methods, while, at the same time, no amount of statistics can compensate for fundamental flaws in a study's design or data collection.

This selective Master’s programme combines the research expertise of the following departments at Utrecht University (UU) and the University of Twente (UT):
-Department of Methodology and Statistics (UU)
-Department of Biostatistics, University Medical Centre Utrecht (UU)
-Department of Research Methodology, Measurement and Data Analysis (UT)
