Dr. Sarah Jay, BA Psychology and Sociology

I took the BA in psychology and sociology because I wanted to better understand people and the systems that create an unequal world. I have to say I found psychology quite frustrating to begin with because there were no definite answers, just many different theories about how and why we do the things we do. However, I soon realised that it is more important to ask questions about the world because there are no definite answers. Psychology places an emphasis on teaching students research skills to properly ask those questions. After the degree, I went into a PhD and am now conducting research in an area I am passionate about.
