University of Brighton has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
On our Applied Psychology and Sociology degree you will engage psychological theory and research, exploring how this knowledge is applied to real-world personal and social issues. This course enables you to explore both the personal and social nature of human experience from different perspectives. The degree follows the recommended curriculum of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and confers eligibility for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC), which is the first step toward becoming a professional psychologist.
This course covers all of the major branches of psychology: developmental, cognitive, social and biological. It also teaches the conceptual and historical issues of psychology as well as the research methods used in its academic practice. Sociology modules help you to critically engage with contemporary issues such as poverty and globalisation. You also look at how individuals form groups and communities, and how they coordinate social action and protest.
