Course summary

The scientific study of the human mind and behaviour is inherently fascinating. Our team of lecturers are passionate about the subject of psychology, using a range of teaching methods to engage and inspire you.We are as much concerned about your student experience with us, as we are about your destination after graduation. You’ll graduate with a range of transferable skills – from data handling, computer skills and effective communication to teamwork, critical thinking and the application of theory to practice.We aim to prepare you for many kinds of career, within and allied to Psychology, providing you with relevant skills and knowledge within an enabling and empowering learning environment.Do you want to know more about the world we live in? Do you care about the world and want to make a difference? If so, you’re well-suited to this Sociology course.Sociology is the study of societies, cultures, and groups. We live in complex societies with laws and informal rules that govern how we interact. Sociology helps you to understand more about yourself, others and the way society is organised.**Combined Honour Awards**At Bath Spa University many of our undergraduate programmes can be combined, so you don’t have to limit yourself to one subject. If you choose to study a combined award then in Year One you’ll start by studying both subjects in equal depth, then from Year Two you can choose whether to continue with an equally joint course, or a Major/Minor route.**More about the Professional Placement Year**A Professional Placement Year (PPY), traditionally known as a sandwich year, is where a student undertakes a period of work with an external organisation for between 9-13 months. The placement occurs between the students' second and third years of undergraduate study. Students can engage in up to 3 placements to make up the total time and are required to source the placement(s) themselves with support from the Careers and Employability Team.
