Psychology

On this course you’ll learn to understand how nature and nurture, biology and culture, and genes and the environment determine human thoughts, feelings and behaviours. You’ll explore a range of theoretical ideas and research evidence, learning to critically evaluate the latest psychological theories and develop ideas of your own. Your course will bridge disciplinary boundaries, taking theories from the behavioural and social sciences and using them to throw light on real-world, practical situations. You’ll learn about both qualitative and quantitative approaches, from discourse analysis and quasi-experimental questionnaire design, through to neuroimaging techniques. In your third year, you’ll enjoy access to our state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, including a fully-immersive virtual reality suite, electroencephalography (EEG), eye-tracking and motion-tracking equipment. You’ll also have the opportunity to demonstrate all you have learned by designing and implementing an individual research project of your own. You’ll be able to choose from a range of psychology programmes according to your interests, be they broad or specific. You’ll also have the chance to experience topics you may not have come across before. If you discover a new passion or interest during your first year, you’ll have the option to change to a different Psychology pathway, ensuring you’re on the right degree for you. All of our programmes are accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership. **Course Structure** **Year 1** In your first year you’ll study three compulsory modules. This will provide a firm foundation for developing your understanding of psychology. You’ll encounter a wide variety of topics, from child development to linking the study of the individual to society. You’ll also discover specific methods for the study of psychology, as you begin to develop research skills and a critical perspective. **Year 2** You’ll continue to study compulsory modules designed to develop your understanding of different branches of psychology. These include an advanced module in research methods in which you’ll consolidate your knowledge of research design, qualitative analysis and statistics. Alongside these, you’ll have the opportunity to choose an optional module from a published list. This could be a psychology module or an option from outside our School that’s relevant to your career or other interests. For example you could take a business or advanced language module. **Year 3** In your final year you’ll complete a substantial research project, reflecting your intellectual interests and career aspirations. You’ll be supported by a supervisor with expertise in your area of research. They’ll help you use your research skills to plan and produce a project drawing on a specific form of data gathering and analysis. This could be focused on interviewing, survey work and/or experimental design, both within the laboratory and in applied contexts. You’ll also select a number of optional modules from a wide range of psychology subjects, giving you specialist knowledge or an integrative, cross-disciplinary perspective. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
