Our sociology and psychology degree explores society and the self by focusing on issues such as gender, identity, relationships and social inequalities. The psychology element of our BSc Hons Sociology and Psychology degree will give you an understanding of the brain, behaviour and experience. The course includes studies of perception, memory and emotion and the development of language. You will explore the way society works through sociological themes such as social justice, gender, crime and deviance, and ethnicity. The two sides of the course are brought together with an exploration of the socio-psychological processes that shape our relationships with each other and society. Our sociology and psychology graduates enter careers in areas such as youth and community work, welfare provision, charitable organisations and local and national government.

All degree courses are made up of modules – individual units of study on different topics. Some modules are compulsory; others can be chosen from a list of options. Our website has full details of your degree structures, module content, and how each module is assessed. The direct link to this course on our website, can be found at the bottom of this page.
Students are assessed through a combination of assessment methods depending on the modules chosen. You can view how each module is assessed within our 'What you will study' section. Each course has formal assessments which count towards your grade. Some courses may also include 'practice' assignments, which help you monitor progress and do not count towards your final grade.
