BSc Psychology and Language Sciences C820

Full Time: 3 Years
Discover the inner workings of the human mind, how language develops and the disorders that can arise, all through this exciting and challenging BSc Psychology and Language Sciences degree.
This course is accredited by the British Psychological Society and enables you to move on to further training as a professional psychologist. Our staff are actively engaged in world-class research in psychology and language sciences, and you will benefit directly from discoveries made in areas such as linguistics, language development, language pathology, and bilingualism.
The first two years will give you a grounding in psychology and linguistics. This enables you to analyse and understand typical speech and language, together with a range of disorders. During the final year you will be able to choose from a wide variety of optional modules, allowing you to tailor the degree to your specific interests.
Throughout the course you will be able to learn a modern language, such as French, German, Spanish, Chinese, Arabic or Russian. No prior language knowledge is required in order to do this. In addition, you can further your professional experience by undertaking a work placement.
During 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. Past examples have included the effects of emotion on cognition, the effects of Huntingdon's Disease on quality of life, and projects examining bilingual and multilingual language comprehension. You may even have the opportunity to present your work at conferences, and a number of past projects have won awards from the British Psychological Society.
Furthermore, 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). We also have three NHS clinics and the world-renowned Charlie Waller Institute for evidence-based psychological treatments on site.
