A Combined Honours degree at Chester gives you the opportunity to study two subjects. You will spend a fairly even amount of time studying each subject area, with possible opportunities to declare a major – minor towards the end of your studies. Psychology Delve deep into the mind and discover more about how people think, behave and feel on this BPS-accredited degree programme. The School of Psychology at Chester offers degrees accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). The course structure allows you to study a wide range of areas of psychology through optional modules at all levels, alongside the core modules required for BPS accreditation. If you’re interested in a professional career in psychology, there are specialist routes through the course where you can take relevant elective modules at each level. This degree will also equip you with a variety of employability skills, including literacy, numeracy, critical appraisal, data handling, communication and logical problem-solving skills. We also offer an optional further year of study abroad that you take between your second and third years of study. As this is an additional year, this means you can use this as an opportunity to pursue areas of study of your choice, whilst exploring another country and culture. Spanish Increase your knowledge of one of the most widely spoken global languages, as you discover the language, culture, politics and society of contemporary Spain and Latin America. Develop your language skills to a very high level, and study a range of cultural and historical contexts. You will be taught in a dynamic department, located in a purpose- built building that includes three digital language laboratories and a dedicated resources room, with all modules taught as workshops. In your first year, you will have the opportunity to study a further language from scratch, and our Languages For All programme allows you to also study one of eleven languages at a range of levels in addition to your degree. Fees are fully reimbursed on completion of the course. You will have an opportunity to undertake a five to eight week placement in Spain or Costa Rica at the end of Year 2, as well as the opportunity to complete an academic year in Spain or Latin America. This allows you to split your experience abroad between two countries, spending time in both Spain and another Spanish speaking country, and to gain invaluable employment skills and knowledge of current affairs.

For Psychology, assessment methods for each module vary, but usually include coursework and examinations. The coursework may involve a traditional essay or, more commonly, a workshop task, presentation, or a case study. Assessments are designed to develop your employability skills as well as allowing you to show your understanding of psychology. This course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) for students who major in Psychology. For Spanish, you will be assessed in all four language skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking, as well as your ability to research and analyse. You will do this in a variety of formats: essays, role-plays, presentations, summaries, debates, portfolios, discussion papers, translations, projects and dissertation.
