Event description

How can we understand a world filled with perpetual cycles of violence and trauma on the one hand, and with enormous potential for care and concern for one another on the other. How can we answer the pressing questions of our time - questions about the precarious connectedness of different communities, be they global, national, public, civic, social, cultural, historical, or the intimate communities of personal life. Psychosocial Studies enables us to unravel the interconnected psychic and social forces that produce us as people, and determine our complex relations to one another. While sociology students study the social world, and psychology students study the brain and behaviour, psychosocial studies students investigate the relation between individuals and the social sphere - how people are made up of the relationships they have with one another, and with the world around them deepening our understanding of the emotional, cultural, imaginary and symbolic aspects of living together.

If you are interested in questions such as these, then you should come along and hear details about this exciting, new and innovative undergraduate degree. The course is taught by staff with international reputations as leaders in the field of psychosocial studies, working in a department that is part of a world-class research institution.

You can study over three years (full-time) or four years (part-time).
