Applied Psychology BSc (Hons) Glasgow Caledonian University




Course info


In Psychology we describe, explain and predict thoughts, feelings and behaviours. Psychologists carry out research, develop theories and often try to solve practical problems. These three elements all feature strongly in this applied psychology programme. Psychology’s intriguing subject matter, blend of specialist knowledge and generic skills provide its graduates with opportunities for personal growth, and many of the characteristics sought by potential employers.

The overarching aim of the programme is to provide a stimulating and challenging education in applied psychology. BSc (Hons) Applied Psychology will allow students to learn about psychological theory and research and how this can be applied to the real world. The core psychology curriculum will be contextualised with real-world examples and a suite of applied psychology modules will introduce students to different professions in psychology. This will be beneficial to graduates in seeking employment or higher study after completion of the programme. The programme also offers a range of psychology modules covering the main areas of the discipline and a range of choice within other complementary disciplines.

To become a Chartered Psychologist, graduates are required to carry out further study and practice in a particular area such as Clinical, Forensic, Health, Educational, Counselling and Sport & Exercise Psychology. The BSc (Hons) Applied Psychology programme offers specialism in four of these areas: Counselling, Forensic, Health and Sport and Exercise Psychology. Students can exit with a named award in one of these areas, providing specific modules have been taken.

There are opportunities to spend a trimester studying abroad and you have the additional option of studying a modern language, biology or social science subject during the programme.

All programme pathways are accredited by the British Psychological Society and meet the requirements for Graduate Level Chartered Membership (GBC) with the Society.

Your career

Graduates can become a Chartered Psychologist after further study and postgraduate training in e.g. clinical, educational, health, occupational, counselling, sport and exercise or forensic psychology, or undertake research and follow an academic career.

Assessment methods

Each module on the programme uses its own learning, teaching and assessment strategy to achieve learning objectives. Assessment methods vary between modules and may include examinations, class tests, essays, lab reports, presentations and group work.

Work Placement

Students will have the option to take the module, Applied Psychology for Career Development which will allow them relate a paid or voluntary experience to psychological theory. This will allow students to gain experience in relevant areas of psychology which should give graduates the edge in the highly competitive employment market.

Teaching methods

Throughout the programme a variety of teaching methods will be used including lectures, practical work, group projects and seminars with a strong emphasis at all levels on personal contact.

Psychology has three undergraduate laboratories equipped with computers for use in practical work.
