Are you intrigued by how people think and behave – both as individuals and groups – in modern society? By studying Psychology with Sociology you will gain a comprehensive understanding of the core areas of psychology stipulated by the British Psychological Society (BPS) alongside learning about society and the structure and dynamics of social systems. You’ll learn in a supportive environment which focuses on teamwork and collaboration. As well as teaching you the core elements of psychology and sociology, we’ll support you in developing your research skills from the start of your degree. In your final year, you’ll work with your supervisor to design and carry out your own research project. In addition, you will have the opportunity to tailor your studies (often with future career goals in mind) by choosing from a range of optional modules from either Psychology or Sociology. You’ll put theory into practice through the professional work placements included in your degree, as well as assessments which help you to develop valuable real-world skills. By combining psychology with sociology, you’ll get the flexibility to focus closely on the roles and experiences of individuals and groups within modern society, with a particular emphasis on cultural and international factors. You’ll look at the interface between human behaviour and society, developing what we call ‘psychological literacy’ and the ‘sociological imagination’. You’ll graduate with an excellent grounding in contemporary psychological and sociological theory and practice, as well as a thorough understanding of the various approaches for explaining and responding to our experiences of society. Professional placements Typical placements include charitable organisations, education and youth projects, civil service and professional organisations. Students have worked shadowing psychologists and other professionals, learning to work with vulnerable people in a range of settings. Career opportunities Psychology with Sociology graduates are employed within the civil service, healthcare, charitable organisations or postgraduate academic research or often go on to further study in a range of areas, including Health Psychology and Neuroscience.
