Course summary

**Summary**: Psychology studies human thoughts, feelings, motivations and behaviour from a range of perspectives using empirical methods. You consider the neurological and cognitive mechanisms that underlie actions and internal mental processes, as well as the social and developmental factors that influence human behaviour.**Course details**: You study how psychology can be applied to a range of settings and topics to inform our understanding of complex issues such as living with mental health conditions, improving education practices, apprehending offenders, improving workplace satisfaction and enhancing athletic performance. Our staff work in clinical practices and provide expertise for organisations including the NHS, the criminal justice system, local charities and businesses – so you are taught topical issues by experts in the field. Your enhanced understanding of interpersonal behaviour and communication leaves you ideally placed for a career in sales, marketing or education. Our emphasis on rigorous research training means you develop excellent research design and analytic skills, prized in professions from accounting to personnel. With British Psychological Society accreditation, you are well placed for further study to become a registered psychologist.**After the course**: Although this is an academic course rather than a professional training course, on successful completion, with a 2.2 or above, you will be eligible to apply for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) status with the British Psychological Society (www.bps.org.uk). The skills and knowledge developed on this course are particularly suited to postgraduate training to become a Chartered Psychologist in any area of psychology. You can also enter a broad range of careers including health and social welfare, the probation service, the prison service, the police, voluntary organisations and the public sector as well as more business related roles.All programmes are designed to incorporate employability skills development alongside your degree course. Our staff utilise their extensive connections to provide many and varied opportunities to engage with potential employers through fairs, guest lecture sessions, live projects and site visits. In addition we offer a series of workshops and events in the first, second and third year that ensure all students are equipped with both degree level subject knowledge PLUS the practical skills that employers are looking for in new graduate recruits.
