Health and Social Care

Faculty overview 

What makes us who we are?  Why do we behave as we do? Do we live in a caring society?  What does it mean to be healthy?  

These are very difficult questions to answer and require an understanding of people. People are highly complex creatures and have been the focus of scientific study for many years.  

Sociologists and Psychologists study people and draw on key concepts such as personality or aggression. However, psychologists focus on the behaviour of individuals, sociologists focus on group behaviour, social structures and social processes that influence us. Both are social sciences that use research techniques, but psychological research is often more scientific. 

Health and Social care focus on how people develop throughout different life stages and how we provide health and social care services to support those in our society who need it.   It also explores what exactly it means to be healthy and how this is measured.
