Course summary

Psychology is the scientific study of mental processes. You'll learn about the structure of the brain as well as the perceptions, thoughts, feelings and actions of people. In years one and three you'll have optional modules to choose from. This is your chance to explore the areas of psychology that you find interesting. As we have experts from across the spectrum of psychology, we are able to offer you a choice from different areas. Forensic and Mental Health is a popular option. This module looks at offending behaviours, including the neuroscience behind them. You'll also examine the role of the justice system and health service in dealing with offending individuals. Our research is transforming lives. We want our students to be part of this. In your final year, you'll do your own research project. You'll have a wide choice of topics. These could be from behavioural to social psychology.


In year one you will study fundamental areas of psychology. This will provide you with a broad foundation of knowledge and introduce you to a wide range of topics. You will take additional modules that look into the psychological approaches to therapy or biological approaches to addiction. You'll also learn about conditions like depression, schizophrenia, and aggression. In your second year, you will develop your knowledge with more advanced modules. Your cognitive psychology lectures will teach you about how emotions can alter memories. You'll also explore further into the disorders of mood and cognition. In year three you will study modules and topics at a higher level. You will be able to choose from a wide range of optional modules. This will help tailor your study to areas that you are particularly interested in. This includes forensic and mental health, clinical psychology, developmental disorders, and psychopathology.
