Why do good people do bad things? When do they help one another? What role do digital technologies play in our relationships? Has globalisation made people across the world more similar, or do old differences persist? How have gender identities changed? What does it mean to be a good citizen?
You will examine how social psychologists use evidence from research to contribute to debates on a wide range of social issues including discrimination and equality, conflict resolution, migration, happiness and well-being. You will also explore how psychology is critical to understanding employment, mental health, and relationships.
As well as specific knowledge about social psychology, this degree course will help you to develop many transferable and work-related skills that are highly valued by employers.
Studying social psychology opens up career opportunities in social justice, public policy, media and communications. As a graduate of social psychology you will have gained an impressive breadth of knowledge and skills that are also attractive to employers across a broad range of careers.
A career as a professional psychologist in the applied areas of psychology will require further study, training and/or work experience beyond your degree – for which this degree course provides useful preparation.
