Psychology has a daily impact on people’s lives. Study in Cambridge with our world-leading researchers, and take the first step towards becoming a chartered psychologist on our British Psychological Society (BPS) accredited degree course.
Curiosity about people’s thoughts, feelings and behaviour is at the centre of this course. You’ll be encouraged to keep asking questions, and develop the scientific, analytical and research skills you need to find answers.
Psychology affects everything we do. While on this course, you’ll learn about scientific, philosophical and historical areas of psychology. Our core modules will give you a solid foundation in the main principles of psychology, and our optional modules the freedom to concentrate on your own interests in more depth. By the time you graduate, you’ll be able to follow your interests into specialised further study, or find a career perfectly suited to you.
Our staff are actively engaged in research, and they’ll support you all the way. Plus, there’s the opportunity to go to extra-curricular weekly seminars, which feature guest presentations from specialist academics and researchers.
While you’re here, you’ll take advantage of our excellent research facilities, including specialist laboratories for measuring electrical activity in the brain, eye movement, psychoneuroimmunology, emotions and communication, psychometrics, human behaviour, consumer reactions, and much more.
Our course is accredited by the British Psychological Society. Providing you graduate with at least a second-class honours degree, you’ll be eligible for graduate chartered membership of the Society. This is the first step towards becoming a chartered psychologist.
