You will develop an informed understanding of the major debates shaping today’s society, and cultivate a wider ‘sociological imagination’ of the contemporary world. You will establish foundations in sociological approaches to gender, ‘race’, class and sexuality. This will feed into higher level courses that deal with more complex issues including the relationship between science and ‘race’, reproductive politics, environmental justice and media power.

The Psychology and Sociology (Hons) course offered at the Aston University covers a wide range of issues in, and theories of, cognitive, developmental and social psychology, psychobiology, and individual differences.
