Course summary

About this course
Become business-ready From developmental to cognitive study, psychology is a fascinating subject. It is potentially made even more fascinating by applying it in a business environment, such as consumer and organisational psychology. It’s about bringing the study of human behaviour to practice in a hands-on and meaningful way. Our programme will help you gain applied and employable skills that will help you in future roles within human resources management, executive leadership or advertising and marketing communications. With smaller, more intimate class sizes, as well as experienced and dedicated academics, we are able to give our students one-to-one teaching and support. You will have the opportunity to collaborate on projects and live briefs with students from other business management and psychology degree programmes, gaining the practical and transferable skills you need for your career. Practical learning As part of the programme you will work with actual business clients to help them solve a real world problem. You will join two excellent schools in the University, and be taught by lecturers from both the Psychology and Business team. You will study business modules which develop knowledge which you will then apply in real business scenarios. You will also study the applications of psychology in a wide range of areas, focusing on businesses and organisations. Who is it for? Those who are interested in all aspects of human behaviour and who wish to study this at degree level, but who do not seek to become Chartered Psychologists, should choose this award. This programme is also for students looking to pursue a career in business management with a focus on marketing and/or human resource management. This programme is also designed to inspire and facilitate the development of a variety of desirable, transferable skills that will enhance employability in any future career, particularly those valuing dealings with people. Such skills include communication, numeracy, teamwork, critical thinking, computing, independent learning and more.

Progression & Careers
On successful completion of the programme, you will be well prepared to progress to a range of opportunities and careers in business management, with a particular focus on marketing and/or human resource management. This course will also help prepare you for a career in occupational psychology. The British Psychological Society have stated that the related speciality of occupational psychology is ‘broader in scope and less formalised that many areas of psychology and it touches on diverse fields, including ergonomics, personnel management and time management.’ With the growing focus on wellbeing in the workplace, this course is also well placed to meet this need. In addition to subject skills and knowledge, graduates also develop skills in communication, numeracy, teamwork, critical thinking, computing, independent learning and many others, all of which are highly valued by employers. This wide range of transferable knowledge and skills will help open up your career prospects, and you could consider a career in any profession or business role across the private, public and third sectors. You may also choose to progress to postgraduate study.
