Summary

Psychology is concerned with all aspects of behaviour and the thoughts, feelings and motivations underlying such behaviour. While psychologists differ in their interests within the field of psychology and in the type of work they do, they all approach the study of behaviour in a scientific way. DCU’s BSc in Psychology, offered through the School of Psychology, is accredited by the Psychological Society of Ireland (PSI). This ensures that the course meets the highest standards for undergraduate pre-professional training in psychology.

About the course

DCU's BSc in Psychology 4-year programme is structured to cover introductory to advanced levels of psychology across the five core pillars of undergraduate training: developmental and lifespan psychology; biological psychology and neuropsychology; social psychology; cognitive psychology and the psychology of individual difference. A core focus running throughout the programme is research literacy supported by a combination of practical and online laboratory activities.

The Psychology degree’s core subjects include research design, quantitative and qualitative methods, cognitive psychology, developmental and lifespan psychology, biological bases of behaviour, social psychology, personality and individual differences, educational psychology, sports psychology, health psychology and organisational psychology. In addition to the core subjects, you can also choose from a range of optional modules from a variety of discipline areas.

This degree places particular emphasis on the application of psychology. For example, you’ll participate in experimental, practical, survey and observational work. This will allow the development of expertise in practical-based psychological methods while deepening your understanding of the theoretical knowledge you are acquiring. You’ll undertake an independent research project in Year Four, which will give you the opportunity to use these valuable skills.

Given our extensive networks with partner hospitals/clinics, schools, industry and researchers, we are the first to lead out in credited undergraduate psychology internships - our Year 3 INTRA programme - in various fields including clinical and behavioural neuroscience; organisational and corporate psychology; applied behavior analysis etc. Our programme covers an exciting range of applied subjects (e.g. health psychology, educational psychology, organizational psychology, clinical neuropsychology and sports psychology) and offers cutting edge options (e.g. Disability and Illness, Law and Neuroscience, Crime and Psychology, Applied Behaviour Analysis and Psychopharmacology).

Careers
