Sociology with Counselling Skills (Including Placement Year)

The University of Essex

UCAS Course code L330


What connects people and what divides them? Do people pull together because they want to or because they have to? What defines us? Sociologists explore why individuals, groups and cultures are the way they are and examine why they may be different. We consider every aspect of our daily lives, how we relate to others and define ourselves.

Taught in partnership with our Department of Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies, this course explores society and culture, alongside the area of counselling which investigates the nature of emotional difficulties and human relationships in relation to individuals, families and communities. You learn to be more effective in your interpersonal functioning and to offer a mature, empathic and sensitive presence to employers and those you work with.
