Course summary

Course Overview

Interested in people, how they think, feel and behave? This course is for those fascinated by human behaviour and emotion, but who don’t want to become a Chartered Psychologist. On this programme you’ll explore what makes people tick from a range of perspectives and specialise in areas of particular interest.

Understanding human behaviour and emotion

This degree in Behavioural Sciences will give you a detailed and balanced knowledge of this fascinating subject and build a strong foundation for your career in this field. As part of this degree you will learn how to analyse data effectively, write concise reports and give engaging presentations. During the first year you’ll develop a strong background in Behavioural Sciences through core modules that cover cognitive, biological, developmental, social and personality psychology. You’ll also look at research methods, making sense of society and take an introduction to cross-disciplinary psychology.
