Course summary

Are you curious to understand why people behave in certain ways? Would you like to take a scientific approach to learning more about your own mind, emotions, and actions? Our British Psychological Society accredited degree enables you to gain broad subject-specific knowledge and advanced skills in communication, research and critical thinking to pursue a career in both science and the arts. Why choose this course?

  • This programme is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS)
  • Engage with real-world psychology research projects

  • Personalise your studies with a variety of optional modules

Psychology is the study of mind and behaviour. From biological influences and social pressures to environmental factors that affect how people think, act, and feel - psychology underpins all that we are and everything we do. The skills you will develop on this degree will not only equip you with subject-specific knowledge but will provide you with a variety of transferable scientific and humanities based skills that can be used in a wide range of sectors. Our Psychology BSc will equip you with a well-rounded education. In addition to studying the principal areas specified by the British Psychological Society (BPS) curriculum, you will have the opportunity to tailor your degree to reflect your career aspirations and interests. As no prior knowledge of psychology is required, during years one and two we will provide you with fundamental scientific skills in research design, statistics, qualitative and survey methods. This will enable you to conduct your own research and critically analyse that of others. In your final year you will work with one of our expert academics to complete a research project from a menu of topics.
