Introduction to BA Psychosocial Studies

Venue: Online

Book your place

Come and join us for our BA Psychosocial Studies Offer Holder afternoon.

Our BA Psychosocial Studies programme is a part of the School of Social Sciences.

You will have the opportunity to chat with our staff Dr Brendan Mcgeever and find out more about the programme.

Dr Brendan McKeever’s core areas of specialism are the study of racism, antisemitism and anti-racism, historically and in the present day; the sociology of class; the study of the former Soviet Union, Marxism and Marxist theory. He is particularly interested in the relationship between racialization and antisemitism and exploring the extent to which these two areas of research can be brought together within the wider sociology of racism and ethnicity studies.

Our BA Psychosocial Studies enables you to unravel the interconnected psychic and social forces that produce us as people and to 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. This means deepening our understanding of the emotional, imaginary and symbolic aspects of living together.

Our psychosocial studies team is genuinely interdisciplinary, with academics coming from backgrounds in anthropology, cultural and postcolonial studies, education studies, gender and sexuality studies, literary studies, critical psychology, psychoanalytic studies and sociology.

Birkbeck teaching takes place in the evening, leaving you free to study, volunteer or explore London during the day.

This event will be online.
