The core modules include English Literature, Sociology and Psychology. These modules encourage academic rigour and debate as students consider the use of language, the impact of society on the individual and the way in which individuals think. English Literature covers modern and classic texts, including Shakespeare, poems from the First World War, and One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest. Sociology involves the study of competing theorists on the most influential aspects of sociology. This includes topics such as crime and deviance, the role of the media and an insight into the two most significant sociological theories of positivism and individualism. Psychology includes a range of academic topics, including criminal profiling, the way in which human behaviour is influenced by external factors and obedience and conformity. You will use a wide range of research methods to examine how psychologists have reached their conclusions.
