Course summary

The Psychology degree will help you to apply scientific knowledge of the mind to recognise people's behaviour and to understand why they act in the way they do. Human behaviour influences every facet of our everyday life, from the decisions we make, to how we respond to our environment and those around us. Our Psychology degree will help you to apply scientific knowledge of the mind to recognise people's behaviour and to understand why they act in the way they do. You'll develop useful and transferable skills in problem solving, communication, critical thinking and evaluation. By the end of the course, you will be equipped with all of the necessary skills and knowledge to design and create your very own investigations and experiments. The BSc (Hons) Psychology programme is accredited with the British Psychological Society (BPS) meaning that successful completion of this programme (with a minimum of a 2:2 degree) will enable you to claim Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) after graduation, which is the first stage towards becoming a professional psychologist. (Students who choose not to or who are unable to follow an accredited route can transfer at the start of Level 5 to an alternative degree, BSc (Hons) Psychological Studies). During your first two years of degree study, we put the emphasis on skill development to ensure you grow into an independent and inquisitive learner. In Year 3, you’ll take greater control of your own studies and will be able to choose from a wide range of specialist options to conduct your own piece of empirical research. Your research project lets you put into practice the skills you’ve developed throughout the course. You will also be encouraged, where possible, to contribute new findings and theory to existing knowledge in your specialist area. A variety of teaching and learning methods are employed to deliver the course and these are tailored to complement your needs. These include: formal essays, class tests, coursework, presentations and examinations. You will be provided with opportunities to prepare you for employment. With our psychology degree, you can follow a wide range of careers. Accreditation from the BPS means that after graduation, you can apply for postgraduate training in professional psychology, including clinical, educational, forensic, sport and exercise, occupational, health, and counselling.   A number of psychology graduates pursue careers as professional psychologists in the areas of organisation, health, counselling, education, forensic and clinical practice, while others find employment in industrial, commercial and public sector organisations. Many graduates from this course use their specialist knowledge and transferable skills as the basis for careers in teaching, welfare, health, education, caring and guidance professions. To prospective employers, psychology offers a combination of analytic and personal skills. Graduates are able to analyse problems, use computer skills and design investigations and are especially aware of human relationships.
