Description


Psychology is the scientific study of the behaviours of individuals and their mental processes. Psychology attempts to unravel what roles genes, biophysical and cultural factors play in behaviour. Sociology is the scientific study of the meaning and central characteristics of society. Sociology attempts to unpack the social relations that underpin human interactions, social inequality and diversity, social change and social welfare.

Combining the study of both the individual and society, you will be well prepared for a wide range of careers. You will find this course particularly suitable if you have an enquiring, questioning mind and you want to understand more about human nature, interactions and experiences.

In Years One and Two you will study a range of modules which will provide you with a thorough grounding in the key concepts, theories and schools of thought in both psychology and sociology. Through a combination of lectures, seminars and practical workshops you will develop a sound understanding of the historical development and contemporary applications of psychological and sociological knowledge, as well as understanding the philosophical debates that underpin psycho-social interpretations of the world around us. In addition, considerable emphasis is placed on enhancing a wide range of transferable skills, paying particular attention to improving your interpersonal and presentation skills, effective reading and writing, analytical thinking and critical reflection, as well as a sustained focus on the development of your research skills.

Years Three and Four are designed to enable you to develop in-depth understanding of a broad range of substantive debates within the disciplines of psychology and sociology. For example, you will have the opportunity to specialise in abnormal psychology, the psychology of religion and spirituality, language and communication, the sociology of gender and sexuality, sociologies of liberation and social policy and politics. Working closely with a member of academic staff, you will conduct your own independent research project in Year Four, in which you will be encouraged to bring together your knowledge of academic theories and concepts, as well as refining your research skills.

Your ability to understand the relationship between complex academic theory and practical research will certainly enhance your employability on completion of this course
