Course summary

Our exciting BA (Hons) Psychosocial Studies course explores the relationship between 'self' and society. The course combines the study of individuals, using psychology and psychoanalysis, with the winder cultural and systemic studies of sociology. You'll gain a rounded understanding of human behaviours, nature and relationships, as well as the ability to apply the theory practically to a variety of questions and fields. Whether you are a full-time (3 days per week, 3 years) or part time (1 flexible day per week, 6 years) student, you will get the opportunity to take a variety of modules in order to build up a programme of study which suits your own subject interest or future career plans. All students have a personal tutor who they can meet at least twice a semester to review progress and assist with any personal or academic problems. In the first year of the programme students are provided with study skills and tutorials in order to hone skills relevant to higher education and progression into the sector. This course is an excellent choice if you're considering a career in fields such as health, education, criminal justice, social work or HR management.
