Overview

You'll explore the traditional areas of each discipline, such as inequality, social stratification, deviance and punishment. You'll also learn about the more contemporary fields such as terrorism, environmentalism, global politics, gender and sexuality, and childhood studies.

The programme

By combining Psychology and Sociology, you'll get the flexibility to focus closely on the roles and experiences of individuals and groups within modern society, with a particular emphasis on cultural and international factors. You'll look at the interface between human behaviour and society, developing what we call 'psychological literacy' and 'sociological imagination'.

You'll also benefit from the framework of professional practice that underpins our approach to teaching, which will prepare you for graduate employment in a modern global society.

You'll graduate with a grounding in contemporary psychological and sociological theory and practice, as well as a thorough understanding of the various approaches for explaining and responding to our experiences of society.
