Psychology BSc (Hons)



What will I learn?

**Course overview**- If you’re fascinated by the way people act, react and interact, Psychology sheds light on it all – giving you the chance to explore the mechanics of the human condition.- How can we improve our ability to detect lies? What role does stress play in our lives? How can professionals improve their performance at work? How can we improve the mental health and wellbeing of society? Psychology offers the answers to these questions and more – helping you learn how to apply scientific methods to measure, understand and explain beliefs, decision-making processes and behaviour across a wide range of psychological settings.- While you’ll start off studying the core areas of the discipline – from the science of memory and language, to the biological basis of our behaviours – you’ll also have the flexibility to tailor your studies to your interests as you progress. You could explore issues like cyberpsychology, child development or neuropsychology. You could even delve further into one area of the discipline, transferring onto one of our specialist degrees. Then, whatever your route, you’ll work on a research project in your final year.- It’s a course shaped around the core syllabus of the professional body – the British Psychological Society (BPS). Whether you’re aiming for a future as a Chartered Psychologist, or you see your future in business, communications, education or law enforcement (to name a few), this degree can open the doors to your professional future.**Why study with us**- Our Psychology degrees are accredited courses with the British Psychological Society and can offer Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC).- Our Psychology teaching was rated 13th in the UK for employment prospects for Psychology graduates - Guardian League Table 2019.- Flexible degree routes enable you to alter your psychology degree award as your interests, expertise and career aspirations develop.
