Course summary

Why choose Huddersfield? We’ve ranked 6th in the UK (and top in Yorkshire) for Sociology in the Guardian University Guide 2020. Why study Sociology and Psychology? Our society is rapidly changing. The study of psychology and sociology together is a fascinating and distinctive synergy of two closely related disciplines. This type of study provides an enhanced set of ‘people skills’ that go beyond those gained from studying a single subject. On the course we’ll give an equal weight to both sociology and psychology. On the sociology side, you’ll study and analyse social relationships in a range of human experiences. From relationships between men and women to the formulation of identity, from race, ethnicity and gender through to the relationship between the powerful and powerless in society, you’ll cover some fascinating areas. Psychology examines the same areas, but from the viewpoint of the individual, looking at their mental processes and structures. So by combining sociology and psychology together, you could gain a well-rounded picture of human society and behaviour. How will you learn? * The course could be the ideal starting point for a career in the civil service, public service and charities, and many other sectors. * Your tutors will engage you through thematic teaching. That means you’ll often study both sociology and psychology together, looking at real-life examples and situations. * You’ll have the chance to go on a work placement in your second year. It could help you put your skills into practice, and be invaluable to increasing your future employability prospects. * In your second year you may have the opportunity to study abroad for a term. * You'll also be eligible for student membership of the British Sociological Association (BSA) (http://www.britsoc.co.uk/), which could help you stand out from other candidates when it comes to finding employment. Professional links and accreditation: By studying this course you'll become eligible for student membership of the British Sociological Association (BSA), giving you access to resources, events, and networking opportunities via the BSA community.
