Degree Overview

The way our minds are shaped and influenced is based on the scientific study of psychology. On this degree programme you’ll explore human behaviour using sound scientific methodology – observation, measurement, and testing – to understand how and why people function in the way they do.

Studying a professionally accredited psychology degree is an essential first step to a career as a psychologist or to move on to postgraduate study. Graduates of this course thrive in careers where an understanding of societal issues is key – in criminal justice, education, social work, research, advertising, human resources and healthcare.

This course focuses on core areas including biological, cognitive, developmental and social psychology, and you’ll cover personality and intelligence, research methods, and historical perspectives. You’ll also complete a work experience placement where you’ll see academic theory applied in practice.
