Sociology and Psychology
You can study Sociology as a joint honours degree with Psychology (50% Sociology and 50% Psychology).
Sociology, and this course, investigates social life and the way it shapes people's behaviour, beliefs and identity. Its subject matter ranges from an examination of the face-to-face interactions of daily life, to large-scale social institutions, social movements and global processes. By understanding the social world, we gain a better understanding of ourselves and our own social situations. Sociology may also be studied through the medium of Welsh.
This ‘pure psychology’ course will allow you to gain a scientific understanding of the basic processes by which we learn, think, feel and adapt to our social conditions. The course covers the investigation of behaviour from infancy to old age, and deals with the biological, social and individual factors that affect human psychology. This course offers you the widest possible choice of modules, which enables you to tailor your study as your interests develop.

Recent graduates have also gone on to further academic study such as the PGCE and postgraduate qualifications leading to teaching and working in the field of social work.
As a graduate with a good degree in psychology from Bangor, a variety of careers will be open to you. There are careers for which a psychology degree is essential, and careers for which psychology provides a useful base. The BSc Psychology is the broadest degree option we offer so is suitable for students who want to follow any of the main psychological professions (clinical psychology, educational psychology, counselling psychology, health psychology, cognitive neuroscience, developmental psychology, applied behaviour analysis, etc). In addition, there are careers open to graduates and postgraduates from any discipline. These include, for example, careers in management training, accountancy, teaching, nursing, social work, the police and the armed forces. Employers are usually looking for general or transferable skills, and a psychology degree arguably provides a unique combination of these.
