Course summary

Introduction

Who am I and how do I live with others? The answer is in the link between our minds, our bodies, our selves, and other people. This is the central task of discovery involved in studying psychology and sociology.

Contemporary Psychology is a scientific discipline dealing with human behaviour, cognition and action. In psychology you will explore and examine the interaction between mind and behaviour, the nature of the unconscious, the functioning of memory, individual behaviour in social situations, prejudice and altruism. Psychology at the University of Suffolk equips students with a thorough grounding in each of the major fields: social psychology, developmental psychology, biological psychology, and cognitive psychology.

The focus of the teaching and learning of psychology is on allowing students to explore fundamental questions about human behaviour, while learning about the importance of research, evidence collection and adherence to ethical codes. Sociology is a subject that developed with the modern world and its key task is to analyse the changing nature of the social world with particular reference to recent developments.

Sociology at the University of Suffolk aims to equip students with the tools they need to understand the world they live in by developing relevant analytical and research skills. The aim of the sociology joint programme is to produce knowledgeable sociologists who can develop sociologically informed arguments. Sociology here is concerned with important classical and contemporary sociological debates in areas such as globalization, social stratification, gender and sexuality, technology, and sociological theory. It also offers students an increasingly specialist knowledge as they progress with their studies.
