Course summary

This course is the scientific study of experience and behaviour - why we behave the way we do, how we connect with other people and the emotional significance we attach to this. Accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), this course will enable you to gain a scientific understanding of the mind, brain, behaviour and experience, as well as the complex interplay between them. Psychological studies have gained increasing importance across a wide range of activities, including human resources, education, sport, social care and the creative industries.

This three year, full-time programme gives students the opportunity to examine the biological, cognitive, developmental, individual difference and social psychological principles underlying everyday experience and behaviour, and then investigating those psychological principles in contexts related to those in which professional psychologists work. The programme is designed to take students from an analysis of everyday functions and attendant important behaviors, through core discipline knowledge of theory and empirical findings relevant to those behaviors and others, to an appreciation and understanding of contexts in which psychology can be applied.

At Chichester, psychological investigation and knowledge considers everyday events such as understanding relationships, exploring well being and using technology. Practical experiments are used as a foundation for understanding and explanation. You'll learn to link the development of research and analytic skills to explanations relevant to everyday experiences. This approach will continue to the final year where you'll explore contexts such as work and lifestyle from a psychological perspective. Practical and laboratory experience and skills development is embedded within this process, as is practical experience of research participation, thus linking the development of research and analytic skills to explaining behaviors relevant to everyday functioning and experiences. This approach is carried through to the final year where psychological knowledge is applied to contexts relevant to peoples' lives and work.
