This is a joint honours degree, which allows you to study 50% of your course in Psychology and 50% in Sociology.
Psychology at BGU will help you answer any questions about life and who we are, such as: ‘Why do we behave the way we do?’, ‘How do gangs, teams and friendship groups form?’, and ‘Will smiling make me feel more positive?’. As well as classic psychological theories and research, you’ll be debating social issues, studying mental processes, and exploring current issues and topics.

Our brand new Sociology programme provides a comprehensive, challenging and exciting grounding in key areas of sociological theory and practice. You’ll get to grips with contemporary and topical issues in society and learn how to apply your knowledge and skills in a range of professional contexts.

This joint honours degree is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) as conferring eligibility for Graduate Membership of the Society with the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership, provided the minimum standard of qualification of Second-Class Honours is achieved and the empirical psychology project is passed. This is the first step towards becoming a Chartered Psychologist and/or Practicing Psychologist.
