BA (Hons) Criminology and Sociology with Foundation Year* (*Subject to approval)

Our BA (Hons) Criminology and Sociology with Foundation Year* is a four-year degree. The teaching team includes practising criminologists at some centres. Students will develop a comprehensive understanding of cutting edge criminological and sociological theorising and will be able to apply this to current socio-economic policies and conditions. In order to achieve this, students will develop a critical understanding of criminology and sociology in relation to current issues such as urbanisation, embodiment, family, globalisation, marginalisation and migration. Criminology and Sociology will be considered from a fresh perspective using feminist, critical, cultural, and race critiques to revisit societal issues. The course is aimed at students who may not be served by the current sociology/criminology degree courses in research-led universities. The first year is a Foundation Year, which students study alongside our LLB (Law) students and is taught by our law tutors. This year focuses on developing the key skills required to undertake degree level study, both academic and legal/professional related learning. The subsequent three years then follow our full-time BA (Hons) Criminology and Sociology course*.... [-]

Bachelor of Arts Degrees in Social Sciences.

The College of Policy Science was founded in 1994 in response to a growing need for an interdisciplinary approach to solving the increasingly complex issues in society.

The Bachelor of Arts Psychology course at the International Psychoanalytic University imparts psychology as a science which maps the human as a social and cultural being. Students learn how human individuals develop themselves in social and societal contexts, how they shape and structure their surroundings, how they become mentally ill under unfavourable conditions, and how they can become healthy again in a conducive relationship bond using psychological means.

Psychoanalytical psychology has been developed in practice and it has to prove itself in real applications.

The study course has been approved and officially accredited until 2017 by the Berlin Senate.... [-]
