Course summary

Lancaster University’s biology with psychology degree explores the biological processes which underpin human behaviour. It has been designed for those wishing to develop an understanding of the influences that govern human behaviour, underpinned by knowledge of the biology of the system.

You will gain a core knowledge of biology and psychology and can choose optional modules according to your interests and career aspirations. The core modules on the degree principally focus on understanding the biology that underpins human behaviour and aim to provide the opportunity to understand psychology in greater depth. You will be encouraged to link your study of biology to a progressive understanding of developmental, physiological and cognitive psychology.

During your degree, you will conduct an independent research project and benefit from the research experience of our internationally renowned academics. You will also receive training in the key techniques associated with modern biosciences. The facilities for studying biology at Lancaster University are excellent - we have invested over £4 million in new life science teaching laboratories.

The BSc Biology with Psychology is taught jointly by our biology academics and the Department of Psychology. Lancaster University is ranked fourth in the UK for biosciences in The Guardian University Guide 2020, and fifth in the UK for biological sciences and 10th for psychology in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019.

Careers

Your biology with psychology degree will open up opportunities in areas such as academic, industrial and medical research. Around half of our graduates use their skills in a commercial setting while half pursue work in scientific, teaching or caring professions. Alternatively, the course is an ideal base from which to continue on to postgraduate study.

During your degree you will gain practical skills such as laboratory competence and experimental design; numerical skills such as statistical analysis and data recording and presentation; and interpersonal skills such as team working, communication and negotiation. The transferable skills and analytical training you will gain during your degree will allow you to enter science or diverse fields such as teaching, management, marketing and finance. You will also study an employability skills module to help you manage your professional development and prepare for the job market.
