Psychology

Contemporary psychology attempts to understand, measure and modify behaviour using scientific methods and evidence. This course will enable you to gain a range of transferable skills which are highly sought after by employers. Module choices and volunteering opportunities enable you to tailor the course to suit your interests. This course covers a wide variety of material, including classic and contemporary psychology theory, methods and practice, as well as the option to study another subject area up to Year Two. Later years include extensive focus on the core areas required by the British Psychological Society (BPS). The course will enable you to develop and refine a high level of psychological literacy, including critical thinking and writing, excellence in research skills and ethical practice, all of which are transferable into a number of graduate careers. Successful completion of credits up to and including a fourth year Honours classification of 50% (2:2) and above confers Graduate Basis for Chartered Status (GBC) with the BPS. This allows graduates to undertake further training as a chartered psychologist.
