Our British Psychological Society accredited course will give you the skills and knowledge to investigate and understand human behaviour and mental processes. At Sheffield, you’ll cover five key areas of psychology to give you a comprehensive understanding of the subject. You’ll study: -Social and health psychology: discover how individuals’ behaviour, attitudes and emotions are affected by social situations and how we can use this knowledge to promote healthy behaviours. -Neuroscience and clinical psychology: explore how mental illnesses are assessed and treated as well as the underlying neural bases of cognitive functions and mental health. -Cognitive psychology: learn how humans think by studying their behaviour. -Developmental psychology: learn about how changes happen across the lifespan, from cognitive development in infancy and childhood, to emotion and cognition in adolescents. -Research methods: develop the skills to be able to answer important psychological questions, from how to design scientifically sound studies, to analysing data and sharing research findings. Within these five areas of Psychology you'll get the chance to explore important topics with real world relevance such as addictions, health behaviours, eating disorders, psychosis, and depression, under the guidance of our internationally recognised experts. You'll run your own experiments and learn from some of the UK’s top psychology researchers, too. This course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and makes you eligible for graduate membership. This is the first step to becoming a chartered psychologist. It's necessary for courses in clinical, health and occupational psychology.
