The BSc (Hons) Psychology with Clinical Psychology degree covers broad concepts of general psychology alongside specialised modules that aim to develop students' understanding of what is involved in working with a range of client groups in clinical settings. Topics such as Approaches to Treatment and Therapy, Mental Health and Counselling Skills have been designed to prepare students to embark on postgraduate study, to practise clinical psychology in a range of settings, or to work in therapeutic areas. This degree aims to address the key concepts and practices of psychology, while also aiming to provide a level of specialised knowledge in clinical psychology. The course is designed to be especially suited to those students considering a career in health or social services. A key aim of the degree is to provide students with the opportunity to develop a realistic appreciation of the work of a clinical psychologist.
During the final year, students may choose from a wide selection of optional modules and are expected to complete an extended independent study. At this stage, it is expected that the majority of students' studies will be determined by their interests and career aspirations.
