Course summary

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. If you have an enquiring, questioning mind and you want to understand more about human nature, interactions and experiences, this course is perfect. The 1st year of this degree course is delivered at West Lothian College or Newbattle Abbey College. Students will then progress to the 2nd year of study at QMU to complete their degree.
