**Why study this course?** This vocational course combines the insights of psychology with those of sociology, enabling you to better understand human behaviour and the different genetic, biological, individual, social and developmental factors that can influence it. You’ll have the opportunity to specialise in areas of interest, such as ethnicity, youth and workplace psychology. In the most recent (2015-16) Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey, 100% of graduates from this course were in work or further study within six months. **More about this course** This joint degree allows you to look at human behaviour from two different perspectives. Psychology integrates theory and evidence-based knowledge from different areas, including genetics, biology, individuality and development. Sociology looks at contemporary social issues, practical sociological research and social relations. Over the course of this degree you’ll develop your understanding of both disciplines and gain the essential research and analytical skills required in both. You’ll look at humans as individuals and as communities, and will explore issues that are becoming increasingly relevant in society today, such as global inequality, gender and sexuality, and religion and the state. You’ll have the opportunity to undertake a work placement in your third year, giving you the chance to gain valuable, hands-on experience. You’ll also complete a psychology and sociology dissertation on a topic of your choosing.
