    I did both Sociology and Psychology and was better in Sociology but that was because I was stronger at Social Science rather than the science side of Psychology.

    I would say Sociology is harder because not even the academics working in that field know what is going on there.

    I think there's a lot of content in both but sociology because psychology also has maths in it like standard deviation etc. I see more people in college atm stressing about psychology than sociology. Hope I helped. Good luck!!

    Psychology is super content heavy but so is Sociology, however Psychology has a biopsychology section where you have to do quite a bit of actual biology and also has a research methods section where maths is involved, so if you're not keen on science or maths maybe choose sociology

    I really enjoyed psychology though, interesting subjext

    I take sociology and one of my close friends takes both psychology and sociology and she said that Psychology is more in-depth when it comes to knowledge but however sociology is in a way more difficult as there is a lot of writing involved (4,6,10,12,20,30 markers). It just depends on wether you are stronger at learning a lot of knowledge or writing essays. Also, although the essay part sounds off-putting, it is so much easier if you just know how to structure the essay and the knowledge that needs to be used. I will say that in my opinion, sociology is very interesting and is in some ways just general knowledge
