Psychology with Counselling

The Bachelor of Science (Honours) Psychology with Counselling employs the scientific approach to understanding behaviour, and introduces students to the practical skills required for effective counselling. Students develop a sound understanding of basic psychological processes and are trained in the scientific methods used by psychologists and counsellors. Throughout the degree, students participate in laboratory work and work to the British Psychological Society Code of Ethics. Students critically evaluate the major theoretical approaches to psychology and counselling, and begin to develop their own counselling skills. The programme equips graduates with the basic scientific grounding and theoretical understanding required for advanced level studies.
