Course summary

At Keele University, we’re proud to be consistently ranked in the Top 3 UK universities for student satisfaction, which is testimony to the safe, supportive and welcoming campus we hope you’ll soon call home. The Psychology and Sociology programme offers a rounded perspective on human behaviour from both the individual, who feels and thinks in particular ways and their social environment, which impacts upon their sense of self and shapes who they are at different stages of their life.On this Combined Honours degree you will learn about different methodological approaches to understanding individuals and the societies in which we live.The psychological content of this degree will challenge you with exciting ideas and findings from across the psychology curriculum. Of particular relevance are the study of developmental psychology, social psychology, cognitive psychology and individual differences. Indicative topics include school bullying and the social dynamics of crowds. The psychology modules on this course are accredited by the British Psychological Society, a necessary first step for many professional careers in psychology, such as clinical, counselling, educational, forensic, occupational or sports psychology, and a prerequisite to becoming a Chartered Psychologist.The compulsory sociology modules will provide you with a grounding in the key areas of the discipline: inequalities, social theory, and research methods. Our programme covers a wide range of topics including families, health, activism and protest, social media, globalisation, and urban life. Studying Sociology will enable you to think independently, critically, and imaginatively about the issues that shape our everyday lives and our futures. During your time at Keele there will be a variety of opportunities for you to engage with your peers and fellow students. You may choose to study abroad for a semester or a year in one of our partner Universities throughout the world, volunteer or get involved with student societies, such as our Keele Sociology society. Combining psychology and sociology prepares students for any of the below psychology careers as well as for work in social care, the health sector, advertising and marketing, and the charity sector, and for postgraduate study in the subjects of Psychology or Sociology.
