The BA (Hons) Psychology and Sociology degree will explore and study human behaviours at different levels. Whilst Psychology focuses on the individual, Sociology looks at broader social issues that affect those individuals; such as poverty, inequality and social injustice. You will also consider how factors in society, such as government policy and globalisation, affect the behaviour of people. You’ll address the implications of social media and take ethical considerations into account when addressing topics such as the reintegration of criminals into society.
