Course summary

The BSc (Hons) Environmental Psychology enables students to develop skills and knowledge in the application of psychological theory and research to human interactions with a wide range of environments. From the impact of living and working environments to productivity and wellbeing to factors which encourage pro environmental behaviours, the programme provides students with an understanding of the dynamic ways in which we interact with our environments and how these shape our individual and societal priorities. The programme also provides eligibility for the Graduate Basis for Chartership with The British Psychological Society (BPS) (Subject to accreditation). Students will be immersed within a contemporary curriculum based on innovative research and study the reciprocal relationship between human behaviour and the environments we inhabit. Teaching and learning on the programme are research-led and informed, enabling students to develop transferrable skills in data management and analysis using a wide range of both quantitative and qualitative methods. Furthermore, the degree programme both integrates the skills for progression into postgraduate training routes in psychology and enhances employability in a range of careers in the public and private sectors and working as environmental communicators. Students work with a research-active, expert psychology team and are introduced to the relevance and practical applications of psychological knowledge to environmental issues through dedicated placement and research opportunities. The programme adopts a broad, integrative approach to environmental psychological inquiry drawing on core research and theory from across the wider discipline. Students also develop knowledge of the major professional divisions within the BPS and gain practical insight into professional practice from visiting practitioners. Students will engage in a diverse range of assessments to demonstrate their learning and the application of psychological research and theory to real world environmental issues.
