Course summary

Psychology is about people - the study of the human mind and behaviour. As such psychology graduates are well sought after in many workplaces. This course is designed to provide you with in-depth knowledge and opportunities for learning a wide range of psychological concepts. It has a hands-on approach to developing research skills and encourages you to apply the theory to real-world settings. The final year gives you the opportunity to specialise in areas of psychology that interest you and to undertake a supervised research project of your own.


Your first year of study will introduce you to the five core areas of psychology and research methods and will allow you to consider the role of psychology in the wider context through modules such as Psychology in Contemporary Contexts and The Science of Psychology. During your second year, you will look into the core aspects of psychology in more detail and you will continue to develop your experimental skills through the Further Research Methods module. Your third year will allow you to tailor your studies to your area of interest by choosing modules such as Occupational Psychology, Forensic Psychology, Media Psychology and Brain and Behaviour. Depending on your module choice, you may also be given the opportunity to put the theoretical psychology into practice in a work or voluntary setting.
