Course summary

BA(Hons) Sociology with Psychology focuses on making a difference to ‘self and society’ by exploring aspects of both of these disciplines.In the first year, you’ll split your time between both, before choosing to specialise in one subject.Engage with real issues and develop fresh insights and solutions to improve people's lives from a social and psychological perspective. Learn to evaluate evidence and build your expertise in research, analysis and communication.Carry out your own research projects to develop solutions to contemporary social and psychology-related issues. Students have done projects on body image and the media, anxiety and depression in young adults, impressions of mental health in education and the psychological power of fascism. Gain industry insights from guest speakers, and take part in work-based learning, through our links with organisations such as the Bristol Youth Offending Team, Bristol Youth Education Service and the police.Activities such as volunteering and placements will build valuable vocational experience, and deepen your skills to make you highly sought after when you graduate.The broad skills and industry-focused experience you’ll gain will make you attractive to a wide range of employers. You could pursue a career in research, education, social work, charity work or counselling, or work in the legal or media sectors. You could also go on to do a postgraduate course or research degree.
