Course summary

Psychology is the scientific study of how humans function biologically, socially and mentally. On this degree you will learn about a diverse range of issues, such as how children learn, socially interact and develop language, what we know about psychological and mental illnesses, how they occur and how they can be treated, why racism is prevalent in our modern world, and why failures in memory lead us to make mistakes when recalling a crime. You will also develop the research skills necessary to investigate the human mind and behaviour and explore what it is that makes each one of us unique. This degree is accredited by the British Psychological Society.
