Level of mathematics for a biology student.Watch
Hello,thanks to use this box for clarifying my doubts. Actually ,I am keenly interested in psychology and I wants to have it like majors in my study. But I really want to know that how much will it be difficult to pursue course for a biology student while having maths in syllabus and how much bsc psychology is complex than ba in psychological sciences?
I've spoken with our School of Psychology and they have said that Psychological Sciences implies that the course does not have a BPS accreditation, which is essential if you are hoping to become a psychologist in the future. This course tends to not include statistics and, in some cases, can affect the value of the programme for employers as you would not have the analysis skills that they expect from a Psychology graduate.
The University of Chester gives combined students the option of gaining accreditation, which they do by choosing appropriate modules at levels 5 and 6. The student would need to take research methods at both level 4 and level 5 in preparation for dissertation in final year in both the Biology and Psychology departments and the combined and single honours Psychology courses are actually quite comparable in statistics, to content and level. In general students tend to opt for the Psychology one on level 5 rather than the Biology one, as the Biology department use R in a programming format which students can find a leap, as we use SPSS presently in Psychology. So if you wanted to either combine the two areas or study Psychology alone the statistics side would be similar with added qualitative analysis in Psychology.
We hope this helps.
