University of Wolverhampton has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
The MSci (Hons) Psychology is a four-year full-time course (usually six years if taken part-time), that provides a comprehensive coverage of all the most important areas in psychology. The course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS).
This Integrated Masters course is designed to provide students with a deep understanding of the applications of psychology and how these interact with our day-to-day lives. By choosing this route students will not be restricting their future career opportunities either within or outside of psychology. This course, if necessary criteria are met, will bestow upon the student eligibility for Graduate Basis for Membership with the British Psychological Society. The structure is based very much on learning ethos within which behaviour is used as a framework for applying specific theories and using a problem based learning approach.
Students will also examine various philosophical approaches to psychology and through this will be able to understand the complexities of human nature. This appreciation is underpinned through the use of various research approaches and methodologies utilised in Psychology. Students will receive support and advice from personal tutors who are expert in the specialist pathway followed, which will enable students to make the best choices with regards to both their studies as well as further career development. This is a truly integrated course and there are many opportunities for students to apply knowledge and skills mastered on one module to other aspects of their learning experience. Indeed, within the personal tutorial system and the high level of small group work, students will receive support in recognising how skills developed in an academic framework are transferable to employability. By the end of this course students will be excellently placed to follow their chosen path, whether this is into either a professional career or further studies.
