Psychology with Linguistics

**Why Warwick?** We’re a world-leading university with the highest academic and research standards. Today more than 25,000 students thrive across four faculties, which feature over 70 research centres and institutes. We’re a constant presence in the rankings of the UK’s and the world’s greatest universities, and the most targeted institution nationally by the UK’s top 100 employers (The Graduate Market in 2017, High Fliers Research Ltd). All of this means you’ll be welcomed to a safe, energetic and cosmopolitan campus with flexible, well-equipped study spaces to help you stretch yourself personally, professionally and academically. Whether you want to be a front-runner in a fast-moving graduate job market, or to make a difference and change the world, we want you here. **The course** This new BSc course combines a broad grounding in psychology with the study of how people communicate through language. This is a brand new course, so we are in the process of applying for accreditation with the British Psychological Society. We will publish updates about accreditation on the web page as soon as the information becomes available. You’ll be taught by academics who are shaping the field internationally within both Psychology and Linguistics, and those working at the intersection of both subjects. The majority of the course will focus on psychology, covering cognitive, social, developmental and biological psychology. Reflecting Warwick’s specialised research expertise in the subject, you’ll explore topics such as economic decision making, the long-term psychological impact of childhood experiences, and the impact of ageing on cognition. The remainder of the course comprises Linguistics modules, which not only introduce you to the structure of language, but also emphasise psycholinguistics (how adults learn a second language and how children learn the first language) and language use in real-world contexts (how people get their message across in different social settings). Topics covered also reflect Warwick’s unique research expertise in areas such as bilingualism, non-verbal behaviour, and cross-cultural communication. Throughout the course you’ll gain a critical awareness of psychological research and theory; the ability to analyse structure of language and patterns of language; plus communication, research, presentation and collaboration skills.
