School Trips for Psychology & Sociology

Psychology and sociology school trips are a fantastic way for students to gain a deeper understanding of their subject. Bringing classroom topics to life, pupils can get a real grasp of the historical and social context of their studies. Our subject specialists can help you tailor your school trip to meet your students’ specific learning objectives, developing your itinerary to match your study themes.

We offer the following thought-provoking school trips for psychology and sociology:

Delve into London’s fascinating sites

London is a great school trip destination for budding psychologists. The Freud Museum London boasts numerous artefacts associated with psychoanalysis, not to mention Freud’s study and consulting room which are still preserved as they were during his lifetime.

Bethlem Royal Hospital is also an unmissable experience for psychology students. The UK’s first institution to specialise in the care of mental health patients, students can take a self-guided tour around the hospital while considering a number of topics, from labelling and diagnosis to freedom and constraint.

London has also played a pivotal role in multiple social movements, including Marxism, the abolition of slavery and the suffragette movement. Sociology students can take a number of themed walking tours around the dynamic city, providing an unparalleled insight into the movements’ political and social impact.

Consider the tyrannies of the Second World War

For students studying themes such as prejudice and conformity, paying a visit to the museums and concentration camps from the Second World War can provide a deeper understanding of the events that took place there. Sociology and psychology school trips to Auschwitz-Birkenau in Krakow are an unforgettable experience for pupils, offering a unique insight into the atrocities that occurred at the start of the 20th century.

Berlin and Vienna are also fantastic destinations for those studying the Holocaust. The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe is a now a poignant symbol of remembrance in the heart of Berlin, and the Topography of Terror and Otto Weidt Museum also provide a captivating insight into the rise of Nazi Germany and lives of those who endured the tyranny.

Study the events surrounding 9/11

An event which many students might still remember from their own lifetime, New York’s September 11 Memorial honours those killed in the 2001 terrorist attack. Students can further their understanding of the events by listening to the personal experiences at the 9/11 Tribute Centre and touring the galleries.

New York also provides multiple learning opportunities for students studying immigration. Sociology school trips can take students to the Ellis Island Immigration Museum, where they can delve into the history of the 12 million immigrants who passed through there.
