Course summary

Study social psychology and learn how society affects our language and actions, as well as how we define ourselves. Discover how attempts to understand who we are must consider the impact of social and psychological influences. As part of this course you’ll:

  • Explore social psychological approaches that extend Western scientific thought
  • Reconsider ideas of consciousness, mind, self and social living from a range of alternative cultural frameworks including psychoanalysis, discursive psychology and non-Western belief systems such as Buddhism and Daoism
  • Gain insights into how the environment, spirituality, language and relationships shape who we are and what we become
  • Develop a critical philosophy of what it means to be human
Find out more... You can get involved in plenty of volunteering opportunities in several areas including mental health and disability support. We also have strong ties with local charitable and community organisations, helping you to understand issues such as domestic abuse as well as child and adolescent psychotherapy. You’ll gain unique perspectives by looking into the important works of Sigmund Freud and Karl Marx and discuss theories gleaned from film and literature works. You’ll challenge contemporary thought on psychology, spiritualism, religion and culture, bridging the gap between the self and society. Why study Social Psychology at Leeds Beckett University...
