Learn how the human mind works and affects behaviour whilst developing wide ranging skills which can be applied to a broad range of careers, from education and marketing to clinical psychology and research. Roehampton is in the top 5 London universities in London for Psychology (Complete University Guide). Roehampton’s BSc Psychology is designed with your career in mind. As well as expanding your knowledge of psychology, we’ll teach you to apply this to real-world issues and different industries, and help you develop a range of skills for your future. This option has a Foundation Year, equipping you with the skills, knowledge and academic grounding you need to succeed in your degree. You’ll develop an excellent understanding of core areas of psychology, including:
- Social psychology, where you’ll learn how our thoughts and feelings are constructed by the society around us.
- Developmental psychology, where you’ll study how our behaviours change throughout our lives, from early childhood all the way through to late adulthood.
- Mental health, including the causes and treatment of different conditions, such as anxiety, eating disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder.
During the foundation year, you will take modules in English and Maths which will develop your core academic and study skills. The syllabus includes a year-long module relevant to your chosen degree subject such as An Introduction to Scientific Thinking. This will provide you with a subject specific knowledge in Psychology which is essential for success in your degree. In your first year, you will be introduced to a range of topics including child development, cognitive and biological processes, psychological research methods and social psychology. Cognitive, social, biological and developmental psychology, and research methods are taught in greater depth in the second year, along with personality psychology and abnormal behaviour. In your final year, you will undertake a year-long, supervised research project. You also have the opportunity to study diverse range of optional modules that reflect the research interests and expertise of the teaching team. Recent examples include Autism; Body Movement, Gaze and Gesture; Psychology of Music; Hands-on Cognitive Science; Neuropsychology; and contemporary developments in the discipline as a whole (eg Positive Psychology, Criminal and Forensic Psychology, Critical Psychology, Health Psychology, and Practical Creativity and Problem Solving).
