The Psychology degree at St Mary’s provides you with a scientific understanding of the mind, brain and behaviour. Alongside the academic content of the programme you will gain transferable skills, including the capacity for self-directed, reflective learning and project management. The Psychology degree at St Mary’s provides a BPS accredited route. Graduation through the accredited route confers eligibility for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership with the British Psychological Society, provided the minimum qualification of Second Class Honours is achieved. We also provide non-accredited routes, which may be of particular interest to students wishing to read for a Joint Honours degree.

Course details


Students complete six modules during their first year which will give them an introduction to Research Methods, and Biological, Social, Cognitive and Developmental Psychology. Conceptual and historical issues will give context and background to current understanding. Alongside your knowledge of the subject, you will also be acquiring and practising academic skills that will underpin your studies. Your second year will again be based around the core themes of the BPS syllabus: Research Methods, Cognitive Psychology, Psychobiology, Social Psychology, Developmental Psychology and Individual Differences. Students wishing to graduate with a BPS accredited programme will complete an Empirical Research Project in a psychology or psychology-related topic. This is an opportunity to carry out original research in an area of your choosing. Although closely supervised by a member of staff, this is very much the student's own work.
