You will take either Quantitative Methods (Maths)*, which is a basic course in Mathematics for students who have at least an AS-level in Mathematics or equivalent and are able to use basic calculus, jointly with Quantitative Methods (Statistics)*, which develops the elementary statistical tools necessary for further study in management and economics with an emphasis on the applicability of these methods; or you will take Mathematical Methods, an introductory level course for those who wish to use mathematics extensively in social science. You will also have a choice of either Introduction to Political Science, which offers an introduction to politics in a globalised world, with a focus on how political science tries to understand and explain cross-country and cross-time differences, or Introduction to Political Theory, which combines classical theory with modern ways of explaining and understanding international relations.
