Course summary

Study the human mind and behaviour in this professionally accredited 4-year Honours programme – your first step towards becoming a chartered psychologist.

The programme offers you the opportunity to gain a British Psychological Society (BPS) accredited psychology degree. You will gain scientific insight into why people act in the way that they do by studying the mind, brain and behavior, and you will then be able to apply this knowledge to real world settings and problems.

Key skills will be developed in the collection, analysis and interpretation of data, which in turn will contribute to an understanding of the research and investigation process.

The BSc (Hons) Psychology degree provides the basis for Graduate Registration with the British Psychology Society.
