Study psychology without maths requirementWatch this thread
So I'm pretty terrible at maths and looked over the national 5 maths book and yeah, not doing that.. is there a way to study a psychology undergraduate degree without any maths involved?
Psychology majors need a solid background in topics such as life science, social science, math, and communication. Concentrating your studies on such topics during high school will help give you the knowledge you need to succeed as a psychology major.
Had you looked at other universities entry requirements for this as I think you'll need maths for it at whatever university you goto........
The issue with doing a psychology degree without a maths requirement is that it'll probably be a BA rather than a BSc and therefore less likely to provide graduate membership of the BPS on completion, which is necessary to progress in psychology - every postgraduate course will ask for a BPS accredited degree, as will every assistant psychologist post.
I've just completed my MSc Psychology course, and mathematics skills are very important, although you do spend little time actually sitting down doing the mathematics yourself. In Psychology (and Sociology too) you use programs such as SPSS which is a statistical analysis package a bit like Microsoft Excel. You need to understand what is going on rather than adding up a lot of numbers on paper.
Having the mathematics requirement for a Psychology course will also improve your general employability
