Course summary

Explore why humans behave the way they do and the impact of these actions within society. Psychology takes a scientific approach to understanding the mind, emotions and behaviour, at the individual and societal levels. This programme encourages you to tackle important social issues exploring cultures across the globe and to consider how societies have changed over time. Our British Psychological Society accredited degree enables you to gain broad subject-specific knowledge and advanced skills in communication, research and critical thinking to pursue a career of your choice. Why choose this course?

  • Accreditation pathway option for Psychology
  • Top 150 in the World for Psychology (Times Higher Education World University Rankings, 2021)
  • Global Top 300 for Social Sciences (Times Higher Education World University Subject Rankings, 2022)
  • Gain highly transferable graduate skills to pursue a broad range of careers in business, service, education and caring professions
Psychology will equip you with a well-rounded education and in addition to studying the principal areas specified by the British Psychological Society (BPS) curriculum, you will have the opportunity to tailor your degree to reflect your career aspirations and interests. Within Sociology, you will explore topics such as ethnicity, class, migration and feminism, and consider the historical explanations and developments for these areas in the contemporary world we now live in. You will investigate how these topics promote inclusion in society or create social divisions based on different opinions and experiences. The skills you will develop will not only equip you with subject-specific knowledge but will provide you with a variety of transferable scientific skills that can be used in a wide range of sectors.
