Psychology

Are you fascinated by the science of the human mind? Do you wonder what leads us to behave in certain ways? If so, then our BSc (Hons) Psychology degree could be the path for you. Choosing a psychology degree opens the door to a diverse range of topics, all of which are concerned with understanding behaviour and exploring the mind. You will explore such questions as: how do childeren think?; what leads us to take risks?; why does that airplane look very small?; why are we attracted to some people and repelled by others?; how can psychology help us to understand political and social issues? You will not only learn how to ask research questions, but importantly, you will develop the skills and understanding to know how to find the answers to these questions. You will complete a piece of independent, but supported piece of research, as your final year dissertation. You will graduate with a rounded understanding of the key domains in psychology and with specific knowledge of specialist areas. You will also have developed critical skills of analysis and evaluation, and be able to communicate effectively and solve problems efficiently. All of these skills are in demand by employers across employment sectors. The degree is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). Graduates who complete with at least second class honours will achieve the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC). This is the first step towards becoming a Chartered Psychologist.
