This course offers the rigour of a science degree, with insights into every aspect of psychology recognised by the British Psychological Society.

In Year 2, you will cover the core areas of psychology and be introduced to research methods and project work.

These include health psychology and clinical psychopathology, as well as units from other subjects. In your final year, you’ll complete a research project and select optional units relating to the current research interests of academic staff.
