Social Psychology with a Year Abroad

On this course you’ll gain a strong grounding in key theories and research methods of social psychology. You’ll study topics such as forensic psychology, family life, the psychology of good and evil, the psychology of mental health, social groups and behavioural change. Throughout your degree you will study a range of theoretical ideas and develop expert research skills. In your final year you’ll also design and implement an individual research project, related to a social psychological topic. Past students have chosen areas such as substance alcohol use, implicit cognition, conspiracy theories, stereotyping and prejudice, and perceptions of ex-offenders. If you’re interested in a career in business, entrepreneurship or the healthcare sector, this course is ideal for you. It’s also an excellent choice if you plan to go on to postgraduate study in social psychology, forensic psychology, clinical psychology, or marketing and management. 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 social 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** You’ll spend your third year studying abroad. **Year 4** 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.
