University of East London

Course Introduction

The University of East London has been a pioneer in the area of Psychosocial Studies, running a unique undergraduate degree programme since 1985. Interest in the approach taken in Psychosocial Studies has grown and there are now significant teaching and research centres across the UK at the University of the West of England, and Birkbeck College (University of London). You will be taught by a staff group who are dedicated to the development of psychosocial ideas and are internationally known for their work. The hallmark of Psychosocial Studies is the belief that the traditional boundaries around subject areas often do not help us really understand people and society. To understand people we have to study both their mind and their social context. We are particularly interested in: examining individuals and cultures in all their depth and complexity. seeking to understand how societies and individuals interact and shape each other. understanding people's lives within the context of our changing world.
