Add a social psychological insight to questions traditionally associated with the study of sociology. You will discover how we develop as individuals and learn how institutions and social structures influence how we act. Touching upon the theories of classical and contemporary sociologists, you will explore a wide range of sociological themes, and study psychological topics, including how different environments shape human behaviour, the inter-relationship between the individual and broader social and cultural phenomena, and how psychology can be used for the benefit of society. You will be able to shape your course to the career you want by selecting from a range of option modules in the final year.
