Social Psychology

Have you ever wondered how salesmen and advertisers get us to buy things? Or why cult leaders exert such destructive influence over their followers? If you’re interested in understanding how the thoughts, feelings and behaviour of individuals are influenced by others, then this British Psychological Society (BPS) accredited degree will appeal to you. Our psychology degrees share a common core in the first year, providing you with a breadth of knowledge, before providing the core BPS curriculum in Year 2, with the option to specialise in your final year in Health, Forensic, Sport & Exercise, Social or Neuropsychology, or retain a breadth of coverage on the BSc (Hons) Psychology. You’ll have a wide range of international opportunities available, including the option to travel to our overseas campuses, support to learn a language or participate in overseas research conferences. Some of our graduates pursue a career in psychology by undertaking postgraduate training to become professional psychologists, including our BPS-accredited master’s programmes. UCLan graduates, however, are valued more broadly, and others utilise the skills that our degree encourages to take graduate-level positions in a range of organisations.
