BA (Hons) Psychology with Sociology
Norfolk House, Exchange Street
- September 2023, Full Time
This programme is subject to revalidation with our University partner, UEA, ready to accept new entrants from September 2024. Therefore, for next year there may be some changes to this advertised course content following the revalidation process.
This programme provides a grounding in the social sciences of Psychology and Sociology. It is suited to a range of careers where employers are looking for graduates with a wide range of skills and knowledge such as handling data and statistics, critical thinking and synthesising ideas.
A degree in Psychology with Sociology will provide you with a thorough grounding in the key strands, theories and debates within Psychology and Sociology. The Psychology modules offer an exciting foundation to cognitive and biological psychology, child development and social psychology. Furthermore, students will study areas including clinical psychology, mental health and wellbeing, language and psychology and crime. Organically complementing the Psychology modules on the inner workings of the human mind, the companion Sociology modules explore the wider social world and the social forces within, in order to explore how societies and communities function and change – and how they may or may not shape us. The degree equips students with the critical thinking skills needed to evaluate the strengths and weakness of applying psychological and sociological concepts and theories in a range of contexts. Students will develop their research skills to give them the opportunity to carry out their own research project as part of their dissertation. Overall, this course will develop students' understanding of human emotion, behaviour and the influence of the ever-developing social world around them.
