SAGE is passionate about social science and is dedicated to finding new ways to support social science researchers. The rise of big data and new technology offers a huge opportunity to address current social science questions in novel ways, as well as to pose entirely new questions. This opportunity comes with challenges too. Alongside ethical, methodological and theoretical challenges social scientists will need an array of additional skills and experience to take full advantage of this opportunity, while maintaining the integrity of the research process.
SAGE Campus courses are designed to support the development of these new skills. We’ve worked with world-leading data science institutes to create courses tailored to the needs of social science research, ensuring they are of the highest quality, up to date, and rigorous. Expert learning support from instructors is available throughout the course, giving you the confidence you need to practically apply your newfound data science knowledge.
As academic publishers, we know that social science research is changing. Massive data sets and new computational tools for data collection and analysis provide a wealth of opportunities for the social sciences and we’ve designed our online courses to help social scientists gain the skills to embrace these opportunities.
In designing and developing these courses we’ve put the social scientist at the center of our process, making sure the courses we’re producing are right for you. SAGE Campus courses have been developed with social science academic experts involved at every stage of creation. They’re involved from the start, from creating a syllabus to writing and developing the content, and reviewing the course at each phase of the design. By putting social science researchers and teachers at the centre, we make sure that these courses equip you with data science skills that are relevant to you.
Your knowledge, understanding and confidence in applying the skills you’ve learned to your own research is what matters most and we make sure that you have support and guidance from experts throughout your course, giving you the best possible online learning experience.
Core to delivering a great SAGE Campus online learning experience is providing you with courses that are relevant, high quality and up to date. To ensure this, we’ve worked with leading academic institutes and experts in data science.
Take a look at some of the organisations we are working with below.
We’ve joined forces with leading academic experts in data science to make sure the courses we’re delivering are relevant, high quality and up to date. All of our courses come with instructor support, so you have somewhere to turn to for advice if you get stuck on an exercise or activity. Our expert learning support are experts in their field, and all of them have experience teaching data science to social scientists at top universities and colleges.
So, let us introduce you to some of our instructors:
Over 50 years of experience as leaders in the field of Research Methods means we are exceptionally well-placed to understand the needs of researchers as methods increasingly adapt to the new and burgeoning field of big data.
SAGE Campus courses have the same trusted quality you can expect from any of our books, journals, or online products. All our courses undergo rigorous review processes at multiple stages throughout course development. Academic experts in the fields of data and social science assess the material to make sure the courses are engaging, challenging, fully up-to-date and pedagogically effective. Most importantly, we ensure that our courses will give you the concrete, practical skills you need to apply your learning in the real-life world of research.
