The overall aim of the BA (Hons) Psychology & Sociology enables you to study two well-established fields in the social sciences. Both areas explore and study human behaviours at different levels. While psychologists focus on individuals (human behaviours), sociologists examine broader social processes, including poverty, inequality and social injustice, alongside global social processes, such as the effects of governmental policies, including neoliberalism and globalisation, upon divergent social groups. The two disciplines complement each other well, taking a micro and macro focus simultaneously and enable you to have a balanced understanding of the inter-relationship between both individuals and societal formations.

You are to spend equal time on Psychology & Sociology. Therefore, you are to acquire knowledge, understanding and a range of practical skills relating to both disciplines. At the same time, you will develop a range of transferable skills that will aid you as you pursue Law related, or public-sector employment, or other careers and further relevant study. More specifically it will:

  • Provide a study of the foundations and theory of Sociology and Psychology and a firm grounding in related studies.
  • Provide you with a sound educational experience that will enable you to acquire a solid grounding in principles, theories and methods, which will embrace all the subject specific abilities, transferable intellectual skills and key skills set down in the current Sociology and Psychology Subject Benchmarks for England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
  • Stimulate you into adopting an enquiring and critical appreciation of these disciplines as well as developing an appreciation of the different contexts in which they operate.
  • Stimulate you into becoming critical and scientific minded social scientist, who can competently handle both sociological and psychological issues.
  • Encourage you to accept responsibility for your own learning, as well as to support you to learn independently using initiative and self-discipline.
  • Provide you with the support you require in order to enhance your eventual employability through taught skills, teaching methods and assessment, our values and Arden Graduate Attributes within the programmes.
  • To provide opportunities for development of personal and other key skills appropriate for graduate employment in different areas including industry, commerce and the related professions, public service or further postgraduate studies.
