Course summary

The British Psychological Society (BPS) accredited Psychology degree explores the secrets of what makes us human, what it means to be alive, and why we behave in the ways we do.

This course covers all the core areas of Psychology stipulated by the British Psychological Society (BPS) curriculum. You'll explore the human being; the workings of the brain; the processes and mechanisms of human thinking, feeling and behaviour; and how psychologists, psychological research and therapy can make a tangible and positive difference to people's lives and society.

In the first two years of this degree, you'll complete core modules in biological, social, developmental, and cognitive psychology, as well as conceptual and historical issues. You'll also undertake training in research methods and statistics.

In your final year you'll complete an empirical research project, focused on a topic of your choosing, under the supervision of a research-active member of staff. You'll have the opportunity to choose from a wide range of options that will help you develop specialist knowledge.

You can also take part in the innovative Professional Practice in Psychology module. Taking on the role of a consultant psychologist, you will work on real-life problem scenarios supplied by external organisations, and provide evidence-based solutions to these organisations.
