BSc (Hons) Counselling and Psychotherapy (With Foundation year )

The Foundation Year of the four-year programme aims to provide understanding of the key subjects in social sciences to meet the prerequisites for study on the associated degree programme. The key areas of study will be effective communication and study skills combined with key subjects in the social sciences and social care practice. You will be introduced to basic theories and concepts within the disciplines to provide a basic knowledge in all related subject areas. Modules on sociology/criminology/social policy and counselling will explore inequalities associated with gender, class, race, disability and health, using different theories to understand social change and how societies try to address inequalities and discrimination. In addition, you will examine key ideas in political and social thought, discussing ideas of citizenship and democracy and learning about the development of policy. Following completion of the Foundation Year, you will progress on to year one of your selected degree for the remainder three years of your course.
