Program Description

BA in Psychosocial Studies


Psychosocial Studies explores the relationship between self and society. This multidisciplinary course combines the focus on the individual found in Psychology and Psychoanalysis with the wider cultural and systemic concerns of Sociology. It develops a rounded understanding of human behavior with practical application to a range of substantive policy areas.

The modules are designed to provide you with a firm grounding in the fundamentals of Sociology, and social, health and Developmental Psychology. With this foundation in place, the course allows you to broaden and deepen your knowledge and understanding of the individual, the social world and the relationship between them. This course is designed to address important questions about the human condition. It will provide you with the intellectual tools to appreciate the complexities of how we shape, and are shaped by, our social surroundings, as well as providing valuable vocational knowledge and skills.
