Course summary

Study across the discipline of psychology with a focus on biological, cognitive, developmental and social aspects, with options including clinical and health. On this degree, which is recognised by the British Psychological Society (BPS), you’ll learn about and gain insights into many aspects of psychology. You’ll develop a solid understanding across the subject by studying a broad range of advanced topics. You will also learn about how psychology engages with other disciplines, such as management, neuroscience, political science and psychiatry. Year 1 focuses on building your knowledge of the basic concepts, methods and theories of psychology. You’ll study biological, cognitive, developmental and social psychology, and their applications. You will learn how to be creative and rigorous in research design and analysis. Year 2 is your chance to advance your knowledge in the core areas of psychology, such as cognitive neuroscience, social psychology and developmental psychology. You'll extend your research methods, skills and project work. You will also select optional units in both semesters. In your final year, you’ll complete your dissertation and learn about psychology solutions to real-world challenges. You’ll choose from a wide range of optional units related to current research topics and the expertise of academic staff. These often cover areas that aren’t always found in other psychology degrees.
