This ‘pure psychology’ course will allow you to gain a scientific understanding of the basic processes by which we learn, think, feel and adapt to our social conditions. The course covers the investigation of behaviour from infancy to old age, and deals with the biological, social and individual factors that affect human psychology. This course offers you the widest possible choice of modules, which enables you to tailor your study as your interests develop. The first year of the course is designed to provide a broad intro-duction to the study of psychology. It is designed to provide a thorough grounding in the subject for those with no Psychology background while allowing those who have already studied Psychology to increase the breadth and depth of their understanding. The second year follows the new British Psychological Society core topics required for the Graduate Basis for Chartered. Year three completes your BSc with a major research project and an in-depth study of at least four topics selected from the full range of modules that are currently available. Year 4 completes the MSci degree with an advanced research project and a postgraduate-level research methods module, along with the study of three postgraduate level topics selected from a range of postgraduate-level modules that are currently available.
