Course summary

This is one of several subject combinations available in our BSc (Honours) Computing and a second subject (Q67). This degree combines computing & IT and psychology to help you examine issues such as the social aspects of computing & IT developments. You’ll divide your time equally between the computing & IT modules and the psychology modules. You’ll learn how psychological research addresses real-life issues, for example, how psychology has both learned from and informed the development of artificial intelligence, and how people interact in online environments. This will complement the skills and knowledge you’ll develop in computing & IT. And you’ll pick a computing & IT focus that fits your needs and interests. Combining the study of these popular and important disciplines will equip you for a wide range of possible careers. Key features of the course
