The BSc Applied Psychology programme (accredited by the British Psychological Society) explores multiple perspectives to psychological issues, recognising that psychology involves a range of research methods, theories, evidence and applications. You will examine patterns in behaviour, both normal and abnormal, across the lifespan. In your first and second year, there will be opportunities to carry out and participate in empirical studies involving a variety of research methods which will prepare you for your final year dissertation. The course also provides you with a placement opportunity at level five, which allows you to see psychology in practice, and provides valuable work-based, transferable skills.
Year 1: Six modules that include biological and cognitive psychology, children’s mental health and development, media psychology. Year 2: Six modules that include educational psychology, sport and health psychology, social psychology, research methods. Year 3: 4 modules plus a dissertation.
