BA (Hons) Psychology & Sociology

Get up close and personal with two social science courses packed into one action-filled course.

Psychology and sociology have a lot of similarities but also many differences. They both study human behavior but incorporate very different methods and ideas. Under psychology, you will take a look at individuals themselves, but under sociology, you will determine how wider societal factors can impact people.

You will be introduced to social, developmental, cognitive and biological elements. You will also discover key case studies within this field that have shaped past as well as contemporary thinking.

As psychological findings and studies tend to focus on western populations, this course is a little different as you will be asked to consider non-western populations and how people differ but can also be similar across the world in terms of behavior and traits.... [-]

BA (Hons) Criminology and Sociology with Foundation Year*

Our BA (Hons) Criminology and Sociology with Foundation Year* is a four-year degree. The teaching team includes practising criminologists at some centres. Students will develop a comprehensive understanding of cutting edge criminological and sociological theorising and will be able to apply this to current socio-economic policies and conditions. In order to achieve this, students will develop a critical understanding of criminology and sociology in relation to current issues such as urbanisation, embodiment, family, globalisation, marginalisation and migration. Criminology and Sociology will be considered from a fresh perspective using feminist, critical, cultural, and race critiques to revisit societal issues. The course is aimed at students who may not be served by the current sociology/criminology degree courses in research-led universities. The first year is a Foundation Year, which students study alongside our LLB (Law) students and is taught by our law tutors. This year focuses on developing the key skills required to undertake degree level study, both academic and legal/professional related learning. The subsequent three years then follow our full-time BA (Hons) Criminology and Sociology course*.... [-]

Overview

On this course, you will gain a detailed knowledge of two fast-developing and exciting subject areas, as well as being able to choose modules according to your interests.

Criminology is concerned not just with crime, how it is defined, experienced and explained, but also with the different ways in which individuals and societies respond to it. It is an interdisciplinary area of study that draws on insights from sociology, social policy, law and the social sciences more generally.

Criminologists adopt different theoretical perspectives and use a range of research methods to increase our understanding of crime and criminal justice. They are interested in offenders (and how they are defined), in the victims of crime, in the social contexts in which crime and victimisation take place, and in ways of controlling crime - whether that is through changing social policies to do with housing, education and welfare or through the work of specialist institutions like the police, probation and prison services....
