BSc Psychology C800
Full Time: 3 Years
Develop a broad knowledge of psychology with BSc Psychology, a course that can be tailored to meet your individual interests.
This course enables you to move on to a wide range of careers or pursue further training to become a professional psychologist. You will be able to pick modules that suit your specific interests, including a range of modules from other subjects. Should you wish to study abroad, you can study at a partner institution for a term during your final year.
The School houses state-of-the-art facilities to support research and learning including eye-tracking and specialist equipment for electrophysiology and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). Additionally, we have three in-house NHS clinics and the world-renowned Charlie Waller Institute for evidence-based psychological treatments on site.
The first year of the course will introduce you to the concepts required for British Psychological Society (BPS) qualification, including cognition, neuroscience, development, personality and social psychology. You will then cover these subjects in far greater depth during the second year. In the final year of the degree you can develop your knowledge by exploring the areas that interest you most. The vast majority of modules in this year are optional and are regularly revised in order to incorporate the latest developments in psychology. Recent modules have included subjects such as autistic spectrum conditions, behavioural economics, nutritional psychology, and cognitive behavioural theory and therapy.
Throughout the course you will gain practical experience, and learn how to devise and run your own experiments. During the final year you will carry out an original piece of research on a topic of your choice. In the past these have included the effects of emotion on cognition, the effects of Huntingdon's Disease on quality of life, and using puppets to test children's IQ. You may even have the opportunity to present your work at conferences, and a number of past projects have won awards from the BPS and British Neuroscience Association.
