Modules

This degree deals with the broad themes of individual differences, social functioning, biological and evolutionary issues, cognition and development across the lifespan.

The modules you take will develop your understanding of psychology’s everyday applications, such as studies of mental health and psychological disorders and the rationale for and use of psychological tests.

At each level of the programme, you’ll have some opportunity to learn about the clinical applications of psychological research. You'll have the opportunity to develop your own particular interests by choosing from a wide range of specialist modules, and will carry out a research project on a clinically relevant topic of your choice with guidance and support from a supervisor. This allows you to apply the many skills you have learned throughout the programme to define and address new questions.

This modular system allows considerable flexibility of choice in your final year when you can tailor your study according to your particular interests and ultimate aims. You will choose six option modules, with at least four modules on topics relating to neuroscience. Your final year research dissertation will be on a neuroscience topic supervised by an expert in the field. The precise list changes year by year (for example, a new member of staff may add a module).

Please note that due to staff research commitments not all of these modules may be available every year.

Assessment method

You’ll be assessed by a variety of methods, depending on your module choices. These include coursework, examinations, laboratory reports, group work and research projects.
