Study two core Social Science disciplines through Distance Learning with Arden University's BA (Hons) Psychology & Sociology Degree course. Both subjects explore and study human behaviours – but at different levels.

While Psychology focuses on individuals, Sociology looks at broader social issues that affect those individuals, such as poverty, inequality and social injustice.

These subjects are examined within the course alongside societal factors such as government policy and globalisation. You get the chance to consider the individual and the social aspects together, to give you a balanced understanding of how society functions.

Arden's School of Law and Social Sciences online course, delivered through our Distance Learning programme is fully flexible to meet your needs. You can study at a time and place to suit you and all your course materials are accessed through our online portal, iLearn.
