Course summary

The Foundation Year in Law and Social Sciences is offered as an entry route to a law, politics, criminology or sociology degree for students who don't yet meet the entry requirements for degree-level study. You enrol on a four-year course, which includes the one-year foundation course. If you complete this year successfully you progress directly onto one of our three-year degree courses in these subject areas. The number of students who progress to degree study are very high - in fact some of these students have gone on to become some of our most successful graduates.

Overview

Our BA Sociology with Psychology lets you study two social sciences that naturally complement each other. You'll get a well-rounded understanding of the major concepts and themes in both contemporary sociology and psychology – and how they relate to everyday life.

Through a range of teaching methods, you’ll learn to analyse both macro and micro information, developing the skills needed to transform your findings into concrete, confident arguments. You’ll also enhance your research ability and gain valuable professional experience through a range of hands-on opportunities and work placements.

Course content

You will analyse the nature of social relationships between individuals, groups and social institutions. Your understanding of major concepts and themes in contemporary sociology and psychology will be developed and you will be able to relate them to life in the community. You will also examine a range of research strategies and methods in sociology and psychology and assess the appropriateness of their use.

How is the BA Sociology and Psychology taught?

You will attend lectures, seminars, workshops and one-to-one tutorials, and supplement the classes with your own independent study. You will work on weekly assignments, practical exercises and presentations as well as a dissertation. You can opt to extend the course by a year, and spend the third year doing a paid work placement, which we will help you to find. This could be with a local authority, a research institution, a voluntary organisation or even the Home Office.

Assessment

You will be assessed through exams and coursework – your portfolio, essays and reports as well as your dissertation.

Careers

Sociology and Psychology are amongst the oldest and most established of the social sciences within Higher education. Both disciplines are highly regarded by employers in both the public and private sectors. Graduates in each of these subjects have some of the best postgraduate employment records of all degrees at Middlesex. Graduates of this course have gone on to careers in research, teaching, management and a range of strategic roles within both the public and private sectors.
