Study two core Social Science disciplines for this Psychology and Sociology degree. Both subjects explore and study human behaviours – but at different levels. While Psychology focuses on individuals, Sociology looks at broader social issues that affect those individuals; such as poverty, inequality and social injustice. These are examined alongside societal factors such as government policy and globalisation. You get the chance to take the individual and the social together, to give you a balanced understanding of how society functions.
