I'm applying for psychology degrees this year and I am struggling to find courses that have the options I want.

I was wondering if anyone could recommend courses that had a range of options in topics like abnormal psychology, psychopathology, mental disorders etc

I'm aiming for about ABB but any course suggestions would be good

Can't offer much advice I'm afraid, but it's worth looking at the online prospectus for the universities to see what modules they do if you haven't already. It's worth looking for unis with modules in Clinical psychology, because you'll find the mental disorder topics in there and possibly the psychopathology too.

Re. psychopathology, it might also be worth looking at courses which offer modules in Forensic Psychology.

I would recommend having a look at Kent's course - they do a good few Psychology degrees, including straight Psychology and Psychology with Clinical Psychology. With the latter, you are guaranteed a place on the two Clinical modules in third year, and Kent also have a brilliant department in Forensic Psychology.

Hi,
I am most interested in clinical psychology myself (mental disorders) and I've chosen my Unis purely based upon if they have clinical/mental health modules! Like someone else said have a deeper look into the course content on the uni websites, generally 3rd year has the most variation and specialised the areas so have a look at those modules!

The University of Derby have (or did have) modules such as abnormal psych, health psych, Autism Aspergers and ADHD and a Schizophrenia Module. I can vouch for the amazing teaching there too

Good Luck

I think it’s pretty standard that this only gets covered in 1 or 2 modules. Things like statsistics, developmental psych and cognition take up way more of the overall syllabus. Sadly no undergraduate course goes heavily into abnormal psychology.
