The BSc (Hons) Psychology is a three-year full-time course (usually six years if taken part-time), that provides a comprehensive coverage of all the most important areas in psychology. The course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). In your first two years with us you study a number of compulsory modules that cover a broad range of psychological sub-disciplines such as social, cognitive, health, clinical, developmental, and psychodynamic psychology, to name but a few. In the final level (your third year if you study full time), you will get to choose a number of optional, specialist modules. We run a slightly different range of specialist modules each year, depending on staff expertise. To get a feel for the sorts of topics we teach for these modules, please view our staff list. Further information about the Psychology department can be found here.
As you progress through the course, you will gain in independence as you complete a series of modules designed to support you in becoming an independent psychological researcher. In your final year, you will choose from a wide range of specialised modules, as well as completing an individual research project.
