Psychology is the scientific study of mental life and human behaviour. It explains how we think, feel and act both individually and as part of a social group. This course offers the rigour of a science degree, with insights into every aspect of psychology recognised by the British Psychological Society. In Year 1, you will gain an understanding of basic concepts, methods and theories in psychology. In Year 2 you will cover the core areas of psychology and be introduced to research methods and project work. You will be trained in experimental methods, questionnaire research and qualitative analysis. Optional units enable you to study topics that are not always found in psychology degrees. These include health psychology and clinical psychopathology, as well as units from other subjects. In your final year, you’ll complete a research project and select optional units relating to the current research interests of academic staff.
