Course summary

The BSc (Hons) Psychology with Sociology degree is a British Psychological Society (BPS) accredited course that combines comprehensive training in psychology with the study of the structure and dynamics of social systems and society as a whole. Our students benefit from weekly research seminars, over 80 academic experts, and they have access to first-class laboratory suites.

The course covers all the core areas of Psychology stipulated by the BPS curriculum. This accounts for two-thirds of the course and includes the workings of the brain; the processes and mechanisms of human thinking, feeling and behaviour; and how psychologists, psychological research and therapy can make a tangible and positive difference to people’s lives and society. The remaining third of the curriculum considers the social structures of society and sociological perspectives on issues such as crime, gender and poverty.

In the first two years of your degree, you'll complete an introduction to psychology and core modules in biological, social, developmental, and cognitive psychology, and you'll undertake training in research methods and statistics.

In sociology, you'll complete additional modules covering social structure and social life, thinking sociologically, classical sociological theory, and another sociology module of your choice.

In your final year, you'll sit a further core module in psychology, and can tailor your studies (often with a view to future employment opportunities) by choosing from a range of optional psychology and sociology modules. In your final year you'll also complete a research project in psychology, focused on a topic of your choosing under the supervision of a research-active member of staff.

You can also take part in the innovative Professional Practice in Psychology module. Taking on the role of a consultant psychologist, you will work on real-life problem scenarios supplied by external organisations, and provide evidence-based solutions to these organisations.

Careers and employability:

Our Psychology with Sociology course is designed so that you can develop all the knowledge and skills that you'll need for your future career.

The course will develop your transferable skills, including:

  • numerical skills (including statistical analysis)
  • analytical skills and critical thinking
  • communication skills
  • presentation skills
  • problem-solving skills.

Highly sought after by employers, these skills will put you in a strong position within the graduate market.
