The course

This BSc course combines a broad grounding in psychology with the study of how people communicate through language. The course is BPS (British Psychological Society) accredited ensuring an excellent standard of Psychology content, and delving deeper into linguistics than our single honours Psychology course, whilst allowing you to keep your career options wide open

You’ll be taught by academics who are shaping the field internationally within both Psychology and Linguistics, and those working at the intersection of both subjects. The majority of the course will focus on psychology, covering cognitive, social, developmental and biological psychology. Reflecting Warwick’s specialised research expertise in the subject, you’ll explore topics such as economic decision making, the long-term psychological impact of childhood experiences, and the impact of ageing on cognition. The remainder of the course comprises Linguistics modules, which not only introduce you to the structure of language, but also emphasises psycholinguistics (how adults learn a second language and how children learn the first language) and language use in real-world contexts (how people get their message across in different social settings). Topics covered also reflect Warwick’s unique research expertise in areas such as bilingualism, non-verbal behaviour, and cross-cultural communication. Throughout the course you’ll gain a critical awareness of psychological research and theory; the ability to analyse structure of language and patterns of language; plus communication, research, presentation and collaboration skills.
