Psychology and Sociology

Psychology and Sociology Curriculum Vision

Psychology at All Saints aims to help you understand yourself and other people by learning about aspects of human behaviour that will help you in daily life, including your interactions with others, your learning and memory performance, your ability to cope with pressure and your understanding of the causes of psychological disorders.

Sociology at All Saints is designed to inspire students to develop a better understanding of the dynamic nature of contemporary society, the major influences upon it such as globalisation and how these processes affect social groups in different ways.
