Keele University

Psychology and Sociology

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. Studying Psychology involves exploring why humans feel, think, and act in the ways that they do. This approach is supported by Sociology where we think about human behaviour in social context. The Psychology and Sociology programme offers a rounded perspective on human behaviour from the point of view of both the individual, who feels and thinks in particular ways, and their social environment, which impacts upon their sense of self and shapes who they are at different stages of their life. In order to investigate psychology in social context in this way, the Psychology and Sociology programme draws on a range of methodological approaches and quantitative and qualitative techniques. Keele enjoys high rates of graduate employment, where in 2016, were recognised nationally as 1st for employability in the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey. The psychology modules on this course are accredited by the British Psychological Society. This is the first step to working as a Chartered Psychologist and further study in the subjects of Psychology or Sociology. Similarly the programme prepares students for work in social care, the health sector, advertising and marketing, and the charity sector.
