Course summary

As psychology is the study and science of human behaviour, it touches every aspect of our lives. This degree explores key questions around why we do the things we do and how we interact with others. You’ll explore how psychologists use research evidence to contribute to debates on forensic science, mental health, relationships, child development, employment and much more. You’ll gain knowledge and understanding of different areas of psychology; develop valuable analytical and communication skills; and enhance your ability to work both independently and collaboratively. This will put you in a strong position when it comes to employment opportunities.**Key features of the course**- Build your knowledge and understanding of a broad range of core topics in psychology - Options allow you to focus on child psychology, counselling, forensic psychology, mental health, or sports psychology - Can be the first step towards professional accreditation as a psychologist- Gain valuable analytical and communication skills that will enhance your employability- Registration is expected to open in March 2020 for courses starting from October 2020.
